About the Book

This Schrier’s Diseases of the Kidney, 9th Edition is edited by Robert W. Schrier, Thomas M. Coffman, Ronald J. Falk, Bruce A. Molitoris, and Eric G. Neilson. Recent advances in many aspects of kidney diseases have mandated the ninth edition textbook of Schrier’s Diseases of the Kidney.


This all-encompassing work provides both clinicians and academicians with the information they need to treat and study kidney disorders.

Combining basic and clinical sciences, the book provides authoritative, concise, and readily accessible information.

About 200 international authorities, guided by a team of five distinguished authorities in nephrology, create an invaluable resource.

Dr. Schrier, the long-time sole editor of this work, has recruited four eminent nephrologists as co-editors for this edition.
