Chapter 8 reflect the changing interface between the emerging specialty of nephrology and infectious disease over the last 50 years. The papers are presented in chronological order. The chapter starts with the fi rst application of modern dialysis technology to a tropical cause of AKI, acute malaria, and ends with papers addressing the infectious challenges of using dialysis and transplantation for the treatment of ESRD. These include the dialysis patient who is prone to infection because of unnatural skin breach by a percutaneous haemodialysis catheter, the transplant patient put at risk for opportunist infection by immunosuppressive therapy, and finally the challenge of renal transplantation when there is ongoing HIV infection.
