Nephrology
NEPHROLOGY [Greek: nephros, kidney + logos, discourse] Dropsy caused by the diseased kidneys was described by Guiliemus da Saliceto (1201–1277) of Italy in 1476. The microscopic anatomy of the kidney was given by the two Italians, Lorenzo Bellini(1643–1704) and Marcello Malpighi(1628–1694). Albumin and blood in urine of patients with renal dropsy were observed by William Charles Wells(1757–1817), a physician at St Thomas’ Hospital in 1812. Richard Bright’s (1789–1858) classic description of chronic nephritis in 1827 was one of the earliest to focus on renal disease. The artificial kidney was introduced in the 1930s, and renal biopsy for detection and management of renal diseases appeared in the mid-1950s.
