Book description

Completely revised new edition of the premier reference on pediatric liver disease. Liver Disease in Children, 3rd Edition provides authoritative coverage of every aspect of liver disease affecting infants, children, and adolescents. The book offers an integrated approach to the science and clinical practice of pediatric hepatology and charts the substantial progress in understanding and treating these diseases. Chapters are written by international experts and address the unique pathophysiology, manifestations, and management of these disorders in the pediatric population. The third edition has been thoroughly updated and features new contributions on liver development, cholestatic and autoimmune disorders, fatty liver disease, and inborn errors of metabolism. With the continued evolution of pediatric hepatology as a discipline, this text remains an essential reference for all physicians involved in the care of children with liver disease.

Reviews

'This book belongs in the library of everyone who practices pediatric gastroenterology and hepatology.'

Source: Seminars in Liver Disease

'With this textbook, the field of pediatric hepatology steps out from behind the shadow of its adult counterparts and should be within arm’s length of each medical and surgical practitioner who encounters children with liver disease.'

Robert H. Squires, Jr Source: Practical Gastroenterology
