Chronic renal failure in infants and children.
Chronic renal failure is an uncommon problem for pediatricians, but early recognition is important for maximizing growth and minimizing complications.

Dialysis remains an important therapy for sustaining these children, and transplantation offers realistic hope for a functioning kidney.
