This book is a good one. It is well illustrated with diagrams and photographs to correlate better pathologic and structural data with clinical expressions of renal function in the normal and abnormal renal states. Emphasis is placed on the functional pathologic viewpoint. Embryology of the kidney is presented briefly and lucidly, thus permitting a good discussion of congenital anomalies. The important renal diseases are presented, and each chapter is well documented. The printing is well done, and the photographs are clear.
