This book aims to bridge the gap between two types of publications on the subject of nephrology—at one end, the huge multi-author reference books with exhaustive bibliographies; and at the other, handbooks or lecture notes which are too brief and too concise. The emphasis in this volume is clinical, and the entire field of nephrology is covered. Updated information that is essential to the understanding and practice of general nephrology, dialysis, and kidney transplantation is included, and presented at a level that is appropriate to medical undergraduates, general physicians, and nephrologists in training.

The editors and contributors are specialists in nephrology and internal medicine, and they include faculty staff from the University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and nephrology departments of other hospitals.


“This new edition continues to provide practical and current information on all aspects of nephrology. It has been thoroughly revised to reflect the constant rapid development in renal pathophysiology and therapy. This practical and compact text is ideal for students, house-officers, residents, fellows, nurses and physicians seeking to maintain a current knowledge base and update their clinical skills in nephrology. Established originally as a course book for students and house-officers primarily for local and regional use, this often consulted and cited text is now better than ever, with more complete discussions of the most pertinent information from pathophysiology and practice in the area.” —Laurence Chan, MD, Dphil(Oxon), FACP, FRCP(London & Edin), FHKCP(Honorary), Professor of MedicineDirector, Transplant Nephrology, University of Colorado
