I would recommend if you need a book in a pinch.

For example, from the glomerular disease section, there was a great explanation on the significance of immune complex deposits.

This was a good source for Renal pathophysiology following the previous source.

Good book for everything besides nephrotic & nephritic syndromes. Its discussion on hypo/hyper-natremias, hypo/hyper-kalemias, and other renal states were great & helpful. However, the chapters dealing with the myriad etiologies of nephrotic & nephritic syndromes were not well organized, though the detail was all there.

Best book for pathophys. Quick review chapter of normal physiology (just enough detail), but path chapters are accurate, in depth and accompanied by useful figures.

This book does go significantly into more detail than is in the First Aid or Goljan, but I think it's EXACTLY what I needed because renal is a subject that needs a lot of explanations.

EXCELLENT book, I would think it's pretty close to a "Lily Pathophysiology of the Heart" for renal pathophys. and when I make that comparison, if you haven't read the Lily pathophys book, you're also seriously missing out.

For example, from the glomerular disease section, there was a great explanation on the significance of immune complex deposits. In classic Nephritic Syndromes ICs deposit characteristically subendothelially or mesangially and b/c of this close location to systemic circulation they are able to attract WBCs when they activate complement and induce inflammation, as opposed to classic nephrotic syndrome where the IC is deposited subepithelially, which is unable to contact WBC in systemic circulation.

Anyways, you get the idea. GET THIS BOOK if you want to learn renal!!!!

This was a great book, but I'm not sure it would have been as helpful without having previously read a different book (a physiology text) relating to the basic renal physiology. This was a good source for Renal pathophysiology following the previous source.
