Renal involvement is a common complication of systemic autoimmune diseases and may be life threatening. The clinical management of these complex disorders is challenging and constantly evolving. This book brings together an international group of clinicians and clinical scientists to contribute to a state of the art review of underlying pathogenic mechanisms, methods of clinical assessment, classification and diagnosis of renal disease, combined with a detailed account of treatment strategies. A contemporary overview of renal involvement associated with the systemic vasculitides and connective tissue diseases such as systemic lupus erythematous and systemic selerosis is included. Patients with autoimmune disease are treated by a variety of clinicians and this book will therefore be of direct relevance to internal medicine and renal physicians rheumatologists, paediatricians, clinical immunologists and general practitioners.
