Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is a rare disease in children and the incidence is low, i.e., 1:106 in general population. Advances in the field of genetic and molecular biology have established modification in understanding the basic renal physiology and acid–base disturbances. RTA is a miscellaneous disease and difficult to understand reflecting complexity in metabolic disturbances in relation to acid–base physiology. Four different types of RTA further complicate the situation, since they involve other organs, besides the kidneys. Endocrine, metabolic, and fluids and electrolytes alterations are quite common in children with RTA. Alterations in sodium, chloride, potassium, calcium, and phosphates metabolism, among others, are evident, especially those that affect the production and secretion of parathyroid hormone, Vitamin D, calcium sensor-receptor, renin-angiotensin-aldosterone-endothelin system, thyroid hormones, and antidiuretic hormone. This book contains 11 chapters starting from understanding the systemic and renal regulation of acid–base metabolism to classification of RTA and differences between different RTA types. Must read book for intensivist.
