This monograph provides in-depth information on exercise-induced acute renal failure after short-term anaerobic exercise, which causes severe pain in the loin and patchy renal ischemia with no sign of rhabdomyolysis. This complete clinical reference book includes characteristics of the disease, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis, and corresponding preventive measures. It also includes important information on gene analysis and etiology.

From the reviews:
"This book focuses on exercise-induced acute renal failure (ALPE), describing the condition in great detail including clinical presentation, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. Pertinent reviews of the literature as well as multiple tables, figures, and images are provided throughout the text. ... The author identifies emergency room physicians, nephrologists, general practitioners, and sports medicine physicians as his target audience. However, the book may be most appealing and pertinent to readers with a particular interest in nephrology." (Chris A. Klenck, Doody's Review Service, August, 2007)
