Book description

The fourth edition of this authoritative text covers every aspect of liver disease affecting infants, children and adolescents. As in the previous editions, it offers an integrative approach to the science and clinical practice of pediatric hepatology and charts the substantial progress in understanding and treating these diseases. All of the chapters are written by international experts and address the unique pathophysiology, manifestations and management of these disorders. This edition of the landmark text features extended coverage of viral hepatitis, metabolic liver disease, fatty liver disease and liver transplantation, including a new chapter on post-transplant care and outcomes. All of the chapters have been updated to reflect changing epidemiology and recent advances in molecular medicine and genomics. 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.

The textbook is the premier reference in the field and should be truly enjoyed by primary care practitioners, gastroenterologists, hepatologists, and anyone genuinely interested in the care of children with liver disease.'
