Ahmed: Nephron Sparing Surgery for Renal Tumors
By Hytham Ahmed
2012 (1st ed), 184 pages, $73 list
Nephron sparing surgery for renal tumors is a procedure that entails complete local resection of a renal tumor while leaving the largest possible amount of normal functioning parenchyma in the involved kidney. in the past it was only employed in cases with absolute indications, now its indications are increasing, not only to cases with relative indications, but also to elective indications. This book contains a review of literature for nephron sparing surgery for renal tumors, including its advantages and disadvantages, indications and contraindications, preparation for it, its different techniques, its results, complications and follow-up protocols after performing it, besides a review to applied renal anatomy and a review to the experience of the National Cancer Institute,Cairo University, Egypt in ten years with this procedure.

Gamble: Pathology of the Kidney in Dysproteinemia
By Charles Gamble
2011, 134 pages, 700 illus, $70 list
Pathology of the Kidney in Dysproteinemia is an academic monograph describing in detail the causes and development of structural and functional changes in the human kidney resulting from the deposition of abnormal circulating serum proteins. The material presented was obtained from 147 cases of renal involvement associated with Dysproteinemia encountered in university and community hospital settings. The described entities account for 4.5% of 3.260 biopsies of native kidneys examined over a period of approximately 25 years. While some of the lesions are quite rare, others are relatively common and seen fairly frequently in a reasonably busy renal biopsy service. Together they constitute a group of extremely interesting lesions in terms of immunology, morphology, and pathogenesis. This book should be of interest to pathologists- especially renal pathologists, immunologists, and internists. Both general internists and sub-specialists in nephrology and hematology will find this volume useful, as will medical residents and medical technologists in these various specialties. As a monograph it is user-friendly, since the subject matter is sufficiently circumscribed to permit expanded or detailed visual and textual treatment of specific lesions in a single easy-to-wield volume.

Murphy: Tumors of the Kidney, Bladder and Related Urinary Structures (Vol 1)
By William M. Murphy, David J. Grignon, Elizabeth J. Perlman
2004, 394 pages, $120 list
Since the publication of the Third Series Fascicle on Tumors of the Kidney, Bladder, and Related Urinary Structures in 1994, there has been a revolution in our understanding of the clinical, pathologic, and molecular features of these lesions. Thus, it is fitting that this volume should be the first of the Fourth Series Tumor Fascicles. In the Fourth Series in general, and in this fascicle in particular, there is an increased emphasis on new molecular findings which are relevant to diagnostic tumor pathology, as well as on the diagnostic features of aspiration and exfoliative cytopathology. Differential diagnosis is also emphasized, and numerous tables summarize important differential diagnostic considerations, including the appropriate roles of immunohistochemical stains. Important recommendations for gross dissection and surgical pathology report construction are also included. Drs. Murphy, Perlman, and Grignon have expanded the Third Series Fascicle by approximately twenty percent, and almost all of the 586 illustrations are now in color. The 1530 references in five chapters are comprehensive and up to date.
Pritchard-Jones: Renal Tumors of Childhood: Biology and Therapy
By Kathy Pritchard-Jones and Jeffrey Dome
2015, 281 pages, $103 list
This book provides a comprehensive overview of the biological basis of renal tumors in childhood and the clinical approaches to their treatment. Recent advances in our understanding of the molecular genetics of Wilms and other renal tumors are placed in their clinical context, including the differing treatment approaches of immediate surgery or pre-operative chemotherapy. The challenges in applying this knowledge to improve risk stratification and to incorporate biologically targeted agents into front-line therapy are discussed. All of the authors are experts from Europe and North America and the book has been written specifically as an easy reference for the practising clinician and the research scientist. It lays the basis for understanding the future direction of clinical and translational research to improve outcomes in patients with childhood renal tumors and will prove indispensable for those treating or researching into these diseases.
