About this book


This comprehensive, easy to read reference addresses the clinical implications of congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) in children. Authored by a panel of internationally recognized pediatric nephrologists and urologists, chapters discuss clinical presentation, workup, interpretation of imaging studies, genetics, prenatal diagnosis, prevention and treatment of various anomalies to help the practitioner understand, diagnose and manage CAKUT. Tables, figures, algorithms and an extensive appendix listing conditions and syndromes associated with CAKUT are featured to assist physicians in the differential diagnosis and workup of different conditions.
