The last few years have been characterized by the progress in the understanding of the pathogenesis of kidney diseases by the increasing interest of nephrologists not only in renal replacement therapy, but namely in early diagnostics and treatment of renal disease. Clinical nephrology now encompasses broad area implementing the progress in genetics, immunology and imaging.
