Preface:

We are pleased to present the seventh edition of the National Kidney Foundation’s Primer on Kidney Diseases. The Primer has been a key resource for students, residents, fellows, and clinicians ever since publication of the first edition by Arthur Greenberg and his editorial team in 1993. This seventh edition has been extensively revised and updated to address the quickly changing landscape of clinical nephrology while preserving the accessibility and utility that define the Primer as the essential resource for clinical challenges in nephrology, electrolyte and acid-base disorders, and hypertensive conditions. This edition brings change to the Primer. Andrew Bomback has joined Mark Perazella and Marcello Tonelli on our editorial team, providing a breadth of expertise and a wealth of clinical experience to this effort. Our group remains committed to the careful selection of content and a diligent editorial process, stressing usability and clinical applicability. To maintain the Primer as a current review of clinical nephrology, we have included new sections that highlight recent advances in nephrology. Our expanding comprehension of the genetic underpinnings of kidney disease is described by Brendan Crawford, Matthew Sampson, and Rasheed Gbadegesin, and a mechanistic approach to complementmediated kidney diseases and thrombotic microangiopathy is outlined by Joshua Thurman. Advances in onconephrology, diabetic nephropathy, membranous glomerulopathy, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, hypertension management, and kidney disease in pregnancy are reflected in extensive updates to ensure that the Primer remains current, accurate, and practical. Suggested readings have been updated to direct readers to additional material. We have also expanded the online features with this edition of the Primer. Access to Expert Consult is available with the activation code provided on the inside front cover.
