While nephrology is but a toddler in the brief history of compartmentalization of medical disciplines, conceptualizations of the functions and diseases of the kidney have existed since antiquity, developed over time and still continue to unfold. It is the unraveling of this heretofore buried past that is continued in this third volume of "History of Nephrology". Beginning with a section on the magic and myths associated with the kidney, the book then continues with chapters on the roots of nephrology as recorded in Babylonian, Egyptian, Pre-Columbian, Greek, Byzantine and medieval medical texts. A third section is dedicated to the contributions of the Padua School of Medicine to nephrology during the 17th century, followed by articles on the contributions of different countries to renal physiology during the 18th and 19th centuries. The concluding sections explore the emergence of the modern era in nephrology and selected aspects of renal replacement therapy. Considering the broad approach taken in this publication, it provides interesting and informative reading not only for nephrologists proper, but also for those interested in the history of medicine in general.
