Reviews for Rheumatology and the Kidney

This is an excellent tool for nephrologists and rheumatologists. The masterful organization will also attract internists and those interested in the care of patients with autoimmune disorders affecting the kidney. It provides an easily accessible reference on specific topics in autoimmune diseases affecting the kidney. This is an excellent resource. Given the updates about these disease processes since the 2001 edition, this update is especially valuable. * Doody's Review * The individual chapters are written by 55 contributors who are at the forefront of their fields. The broad general review of the various disease categories, with clinical characteristics, diagnostic criteria, histopathological changes, immunological aspects and finally treatment, is comprehensive and academically well informed. This book should be in every office! * Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association *
