Nephrology is a branch of internal medicine dealing with the study of the function and diseases of the kidney. Nephrology concerns the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases, including electrolyte disturbances and hypertension, and the care of those requiring renal replacement therapy, including dialysis and renal transplant patients. Many diseases affecting the kidney are systemic disorders not limited to the organ itself, and may require special treatment. Examples include acquired conditions such as systemic vacuities (eg. ANCA vacuities) autoimmune diseases (e.g., lupus), and  congenital or genetic conditions such as polycystic kidney disease.
