Abstract

The book, as the author explains in his preface, is intended to present in a short and concise manner the latest developments and accepted progress in the field of renal disease demanding medical treatment. The author has accomplished his task in an excellent way. The first two chapters dealing with the anatomic and physiologic relations of the kidneys are brief, clear and up to date. They are followed by a description of the normal and pathologic relations of the urinary tract and a critical review of the various methods for a functional study of the kidney, with a final paragraph mentioning the author's preferences: for preciseness, Moeller, McIntosh and Van Slyke's method (urea clearance) and Rehberg's test, and for rough estimation McLean's and Fishberg's tests. He speaks appreciatively of Volhard's concentration and dilution test. The chapter on pathogenesis of edema summarizes well the current opinion on the subject. Part 2
