Conclusion

The 4th Congress of Mediterranean Kidney Society was held from 20th to 22nd of April, 2018 in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mediterranean Region is one of the most important geopolitical and region of civilization  in the world. It is characterized by similarities and diversities of all kind and similarities and diversities in medicine and in success of treatment of nephrological patients as well. Our expectations that this 4th meeting of Mediterranean nephrologists would result in important and useful suggestions for treatment improvement of nephrological patients, especially in trending fields such as renal transplantation and nephrology care in disasters, were accomplished.

There were 12 scientific sessions including invited lecturers presentations, oral and poster presentations, with colleagues from Albania, Montenegro, Egypt, France, Greece, Croatia, Spain, Italy, Libya, Slovenia, Turkey, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina participating.  Thirty seven invited lecturers held presentations about acute and chronic renal impairment, dialysis, renal transplantation, with special attention given to human organ trafficking and ethical dilemmas, nephrology care in disasters and pediatric nephrology. Beside invited lecturers presentations, 15 oral and 43 oral presentations were also held. There were 16 presentations held by young doctors, mostly nephrologists, from Bosnia and Herzegovina: 3 invited lecturers presentations, 4 oral and 9 poster presentations.
