Book summary

This aims to provide in-depth information for the pathologist and nephrologist to make an early diagnosis from renal biopsy. The text gives a description of structural alterations in the kidneys in the face of diseases affecting them. It covers a wide range of diseases, and particularly emphasizes the earliest changes that may be recognised in a biopsy. Both common and rare conditions are discussed, and insufficient detail that the reader will recognise them when encountered. For each condition renal findings by light, electron and immunofluorescence and immunoperoxidase microscopy are given. Then the main clinical features, findings of other lab tests, differential diagnosis, complications, results after renal transplantation, prognosis, pathogenesis and variants are also listed. It covers both common and rare conditions and emphasizes differential diagnosis. It is designed to be a practical, lab bench book. [via]
