“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 CompetitionDiseases 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.
