During the past 20 years, there has been an explosion of clinical, basic science and translational research leading to a better understanding of the physiology and disease processes in the gastrointestinal system of children. Endoscopic techniques have improved, correlation of radiographic and biopsy findings with disease have become better defined, and advances in transplant care have led to markedly improved survival, even in the smallest of infants.
Pediatric Gastroenterology: A Color Handbook explores the entirety of pediatric gastroenterology, including the gastrointestinal tract, liver, pancreas, and associated nutrition, radiographic, and endoscopic considerations. It covers a wide range of diverse topics and provides a basic overview of pediatric gastrointestinal disease.
The book presents a multitude of endoscopic, histologic, and radiographic images as well as illustrations and metabolic pathways (494 colour illustrations in all) to convey a better understanding of disease processes. It also includes a list of recommended readings provided by the chapter authors, giving you a solid introduction to pediatric gastroenterology.
"...eloquently covers all the relevant aspects of pediatric gastroenterology. The figures, especially the endoscopic images, are of high quality and are the major strength of the handbook. I highly recommend this book..." — Harland Winter MD, Department of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School
Authors: John F Pohl, Christopher Jolley, and Daniel Gelfond
