Children and adolescent with CKD/ESRD: illustrative cases

Nothing good comes easy! How to organize clinical information in children with complex kidney disorders, and how to reason through the details to generate useful diagnostic considerations, appropriate evaluation approaches, and best therapies is the quintessential task for the pediatric nephrologist. In this session, our 3 pediatric nephrology master clinicians will each present a challenging case from their institutions and interact as they reason through to take the best care of patients.
