For the past 17 years, Pediatric Hypertension has served as the definitive reference text on hypertension in children and adolescents. Each edition has incorporated the latest research on the pathophysiology, clinical significance and management of hypertension in the young, and has incorporated the most current consensus guidelines on diagnosis and management. The years since publication of the fourth edition have seen further advances in the field that merit publication of an updated, expanded text, including:
• Analysis of the implications of updated hypertension guidelines on identification of youth at highest cardiovascular risk
• Additional data on the proximate effects of high blood pressure in children in adolescents
• Further understanding of the links between high blood pressure in youth and surrogate markers of adult cardiovascular disease
The fifth edition is a readable, informative text that provides a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis, management and therapy of hypertension in children and adolescents, and presents new data that very clearly indicate that the origins of adult cardiovascular disease are rooted in pediatric hypertension. It will, as a result, be very important for therapeutic decisions and will also be highly relevant for those in internal medicine, who care for the millions of adults who have hypertension, cardiovascular disease and kidney disease. In this sense, the book fulfills the longstanding goal of showing that hypertension that begins in childhood is important to track, diagnose and treat, and that the present understanding of adult hypertension necessitates the study of blood pressure in youth.

The fifth edition has a similar structural format to the prior editions and covers all aspects of pediatric hypertension, from basic science research to the most recent clinical information.

• Julie R. Ingelfinger, MD
Julie R. Ingelfinger, MD is a professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, senior consultant in pediatric nephrology at MassGeneral Hospital for Children at Massachusetts General Hospital, and a deputy editor of the New England Journal of Medicine. She is an internationally recognized hypertension specialist and consultative pediatric nephrologist. Her commitment to teaching has been reflected by receiving the Henry L. Barnett award from the AAP in 2009, the Founders Award from the American Society of Pediatric Nephrology in 2012, the National Kidney Foundation’s Honors Award in 2018, and the Alumni Lifetime Achievement Award from Albert Einstein College of Medicine (2018).

Dr. Ingelfinger has been involved in studies of the intrarenal renin angiotensin aldosterone system (RAAS) for many years. Her current projects focus on the role of the intrarenal renin angiotensin system in disease states and the role of maternal diabetes in kidney development and perinatal programming.

She is interested in innovative ways to teach writing and communication and has been an editor of Pediatric Hypertension in each of its 5 editions.
