Cancer and the Kidney covers the challenging overlap area of nephrology and oncology. Kidney problems in cancer patients, and cancer that affects kidney patients, are both very real clinical issues in medicine. For example, cancer is a common complication of kidney transplantation, and up tohalf of all survivors of bone marrow transplant may develop chronic kidney disease. Since publication of the first edition in 2005, there have been many changes in this area. These include the recognition of chronic kidney disease after uninephrectomy for cancer, the occurrence of medication toxicities of the EGFR antagonists and of the VEGF antagonists, and changes in the approachto multiple myeloma. In this new edition, the primary authors cover diverse subjects in this area, ranging from assessment of kidney function, to paraneoplastic disorders, acquired cysts and native kidney cancers, and all points inbetween. Each chapter starts with a case study to ensure a practicalfocus, and there are numerous illustrations throughout. Specialists and trainees in nephrology and in oncology will find it a useful starting point and reference, as will physician assistants and nurse practitioners who work in these fields.
This book reflects Dr Cohen's active interest in the challenging overlap area of nephrology and oncology, deriving in turn from his interest and multiple studies of kidney disease after hematopoietic stem cell transplant ("bone marrow transplant"). He trained at the Universite de Liege, in Belgium and is a member of the Central Societ...
