Liver disease in children is increasing in prevalence, placing a huge burden on healthcare systems and often requiring long-term management. Offering an integrative approach to the science and clinical practice of pediatric hepatology, this is the definitive reference text for improved diagnosis and treatment strategies. In the new edition of this authoritative text, chapters have been thoroughly revised in line with major advances in the field, such as recognizing the increased frequency of fatty liver disease, and how genetic testing has the potential to establish earlier diagnoses for a variety of diseases. Disorders covered include cholestasis, metabolic disorders and hepatitis, with their presentation across the spectrum of infancy, childhood and adolescence discussed. The indications and surgical aspects of liver transplant are explained and post-transplant care is described in detail. This is a valuable resource for pediatricians, hepatologists, gastroenterologists and all clinicians involved in the care of children with liver diseases.

• Fully updated to reflect advances in genomics, molecular medicine and personalized therapy, allowing readers to apply this knowledge for improved early diagnoses and treatment
• Comprehensively covers every aspect of pediatric liver disease including current approaches to diagnosis and treatment, across the spectrum of infancy, childhood and adolescence
• Three new Associate Editors and several new contributors add a fresh perspective and provide additional expertise to the book, complementing the experience of the established authors
