Nephrology, a branch of Internal Medicine, encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of kidney-related ailments. The human body comprises two bean-shaped organs, known as kidneys, located on either side in the retroperitoneal space. These organs are responsible for eliminating waste products and excess fluids from the body, while also maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance that can be influenced by various conditions or medications.

Numerous kidney diseases are caused by systematic disorders that extend beyond the kidneys themselves. As such, these conditions require specialized treatment and medical care.
