This text offers second-year medical students a case-based approach to learning mechanisms of renal disease. Each chapter covers a disease and begins with a patient case, followed by discussion of the pathophysiology of the disease. Issues of differential diagnosis and therapy are linked to pathophysiologic mechanisms. Short questions interspersed in the text require students to apply their knowledge, and detailed answers to the questions are given.
The Second Edition incorporates the latest findings regarding mechanisms of renal disease. This edition also has a two-color art program and a fresh new design that features cases, questions, and other pedagogical elements prominently.

Doody's Book Review Service , Jens Goebel, MD, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center -- "Like the first edition of 1994, this second edition provides a solid, broad understanding of the mechanisms underlying kidney dysfunction and disease...The book comprehensively covers all aspects of the kidney function in health and its alterations in kidney disease, acute and chronic. It is written, illustrated, and structured very well with a useful mix of case vignettes, summaries, questions and two-color illustrations that are clear and helpful...The strength of this book is its didactic clarity, conciseness, and structure, reflected in its compact paperback format while preserving its comprehensiveness."-Doody's Book Review Service
