Diseases of the Liver and Biliary System in Children (Hardcover) (Deirdre Kelly)
About this item
Diseases of the Liver and Biliary System in Children is the market-leading reference book on paediatric liver disease. Authored by the world’s leading hepatologists and pediatricians and expertly edited by Deirdre Kelly, it comprehensively covers the entire topic from pathology to diagnosis and clinical management, and in all stages of childhood from the unborn baby through to infancy, and from childhood to the transition into adolescence.
The 4th edition includes 12 new chapters in addition to a full revision of all existing chapters with the very latest developments in pediatric hepatology. Strong focus is on how liver disease in children is managed by the multi-disciplinary team, and with increasing numbers of young people surviving into adult life, the importance of managing adolescent transition effectively. As always, leading society guidelines from EASL, AASLD and ESPGHAN will be referred to throughout.
Hepatologists, pediatricians and gastroenterologists of all levels will find this an essential tool to consult time and time again.
