This text offers medical students a case-based approach to learning the mechanisms of renal disease. Each chapter covers a disease, beginning with a patient case and followed by a discussion of the pathophysiology of the disease. Issues of differential diagnosis and therapy are linked to pathophysiologic mechanisms. Short questions interspersed throughout the text require students to apply their knowledge. Detailed answers to the questions are included.
This book includes a number of features to help students master the principles of physiology:
62 cases organized by body system to help students integrate material
Several expanded cases, including myasthenia gravis, atrioventricular conduction block, carbon monoxide poisoning, peptic ulcer disease, galactorrhea and amenorrhea, and prolactinoma
2 new cases on Chronic Renal Failure, Liver Failure and Hepatorenal Syndrome
New full-color interior, tables, and illustrations
Within each case, questions are arranged sequentially so that they intentionally build upon each other
