Fogo and Kashgarian have created an excellent comprehensive atlas with a unique feature: The images and text are keyed to the major textbook of kidney diseases, Brener and Rector’s The Kidney (7th ed).
The images are exceptional. The IF photos are especially well done. The images of H and E’s and silver stains are of highest quality and demonstrate unit lesions with simplicity and clarity.
An excellent atlas in renal pathology, with text supplementing. The references are complete and well choosen. The quality of colour photographies is perfect. The format is useful and friendly. This book will be of great use to renal pathology subspecialists and to residents and fellows.
This new atlas covers all major inflammatory, infectious, pre-neoplastic, and neoplastic diseases of the kidney. Over 600 illustrations help readers to recognize the pathologic features and clinical manifestations of both common and rare renal disorders and to formulate confident and accurate diagnoses. This resource, Diagnostic Atlas of Renal Pathology, is designed as a companion book to, "The Kidney 7th Edition" by Brenner and Rector. The newest information regarding categorizing and classification of diseases is presented and how this relates to the various morphological lesions illustrated and their clinical significance. Offers more than 600 superb illustrations-500 full color- of both surgically and percutaneously obtained renal specimens to facilitate benchside interpretation and diagnosis. Presents interpretive line drawings to help readers recognize the most significant features of various specimens. Includes focused discussions outlining key characteristic pathologic findings and prognostic, pathogenetic, and etiologic information. Reflects the newest disease classifications. Uses a consistent format to expedite reference. Provides clinical correlations to help readers complete a diagnostic report. Features cross-references to Brenner and Rector’s The Kidney 7th Edition, making it easy to locate in-depth information on any disease’s clinical course and treatment.
