"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."
