About this Book

"An excellent up-to-date comprehensive and practical text book dealing with all aspects of paediatric hepatobiliary disease. It will be useful to both generalists and specialists as it is clinically focused with a problem-solving approach and should be useful for day-to-day as well as more esoteric clinical problems. I found it useful in my general paediatric practice and my trainees have also found it useful. It is very practical with a diagnostic approach and lots of tables and clinical pathways to follow when confronted with day-to-day clinical problems. I have road-tested it in real life with good effect." - Judging Panel, 2004 BMA Medical Book Competition


Diseases of the Liver and Biliary System in Children, Third Edition provides a practical approach to the diagnosis and management of paediatric liver diseases, highlighting the importance of multidisciplinary team working and holistic management of the child and family. This fully revised edition has also been updated to cover recent advances in paediatric hepatology. It includes new chapters describing the effects of liver disease in pregnancy on mother and child through to adolescence. With increasing numbers of young people surviving into adult life this edition addresses the importance of managing adolescent transition effectively.

Trainees, practising paediatric gastroenterologists and hepatologists will welcome the practical approach outlined in this text, while other healthcare professionals involved in the management of liver disease in children will find it an accessible and comprehensive reference.
