"It is essential for renal pathology fellows and residents in pathology. It also would be a great resource for renal pathologists and nephrologists." - Doody’s Reviews, review of last edition
"The book will be appreciated by anyone who is trying to get to grips with renal pathology, including both pathology and renal trainees. There are schematic representations of glomerular diseases, which are particularly useful for getting some key concepts across...Also new are boxes with key diagnostic features and summaries of differential diagnoses. these are a great asset, as in many textbooks the important points for clinical practice can be lost in the wealth of information provided....This atlas is an ideal reference book for a wide audience of reporting pathologists and renal physicians, both in training and as consultants. It presents renal pathology in a user-friendly and concise format, and it should help its user to shine at the renal multidisciplinary meeting, by using the differential diagnosis boxes to ask insightful and probing questions! It is also an excellent resource for the academic pathologists with teaching duties, in particular through the online content! (Expert Consult)"
