"Drs. MC Chiu and HK Yap have solicited eminent pediatric nephrologists
from Asia (China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea and Singapore) to collaborate
in the development of a superb textbook on Practical Pediatric Nephrology.
This textbook will assist all physicians worldwide in the clinical management
of the infant, child and adolescent with kidney disease. It delineates a
pragmatic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of children who present
with any clinical problem involving the kidney."

"The editors are to be congratulated on gathering a group of expert
contributors from Asian countries, who have written concise, informative
and up to date chapters on a wide range of paediatric nephrological topics
containing much practical advice. ... This excellent and timely volume
will prove invaluable to all who have responsibility for children with
renal and urinary tract disease. It will be particularly helpful to clinicians
and nurses on the wards and in the clinics who, when confronted by paediatric
nephrological problems, will have an extremely useful source of practical
information at hand."
