Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"This brief handbook of renal pathology, almost a pocket-sized book, could be easily carried around by busy nephrologists or renal pathologists. . Pathologists and their trainees, nephrologists, and renal transplant surgeons are the intended audience. It also could be used by medical students and residents in internal medicine, nurses, and pharmacists. . This is a wonderful little book that will appeal to practicing nephrologists, nephropathologists, and renal transplant surgeons, as well as their trainees." (Ivan Damjanov, Doody's Review Service, February, 2009)
