Approximately ten percent of the world population are affected by kidney diseases, which often can only be diagnosed by renal biopsy. This practical guide offers an algorithmic, deductive approach to the interpretation of this complicated procedure, covering all technical methods used for diagnosis. This new edition includes an authoritative chapter on digital renal pathology, a topic inadequately covered in current literature. All chapters have been extensively revised in light of major advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis and clinicopathological features of renal disease. Written for practising pathologists and nephrologists, this text encompasses the entire spectrum of medical renal diseases in both pediatric and adult populations. Its numerous diagnostic algorithms provide a convenient overview and a helpful guide into the detailed text, directing the reader to major patterns of interest. Including online access to over 1000 photomicrographs and diagrams, this book is also of interest to trainees in nephrology and pathology.

'In summary, this single volume textbook of renal pathology is characterized by a 3-dimensional approach - symptomatic classification (dimension #1), charming algorithms (dimension #2) and right amount of images with substantial discussion and detail references (dimension #3). To us, it is a 'just right' book for teaching our residents and nephrology fellows, and serving as a key reference book for our daily practice in renal pathology.' Ping L. Zhang and Hassan D. Kanaan, American Journal of Surgical Pathology
