This highly acclaimed book deals with all the key kidney, ureter and bladder problems likely to be encountered by the non-specialist paediatrician and paediatric nephrologist. The book adopts an evidence-based, problem solving approach and focuses on presenting clinical symptoms rather thanbeing disease orientated. Emphasis is placed on differential diagnosis, evaluation and treatment. Where no evidence is available or where controversy exists, a clear opinion on the most appropriate treatment is provided. For this completely revised and updated edition over half of the text isrevised. New chapters have been added on psychosocial care principles, drug prescribing in children and paediatric nephrology in the third world. Certain chapters have been condensed for clarity and other chapters have been combined to facilitate practical use. This edition is based aroundpractical guidelines and contributions have been collected from international experts in the field. The chapters contain key point boxes highlighting the important take-home messages. The well-structured text is ideal for trainee and non-specialist paediatricians, for paediatric nephrologists andfor nephrologists and urologists with an interest in children. This book is undoubtedly regarded as 'the' paediatric nephrology textbook to be held on the shelves of all general paediatric departmental libraries.
