Pediatric hepatology continues to evolve as a critically important medical discipline. This vital transformation is the result of the extensive application of liver transplantation in children and of focused pediatric research, leading to greater understanding of the development and function of the liver in pediatric health and disease.
The distinctive epidemiologic, clinical, and therapeutic aspects of liver ailments in children underscore the need for a reliable pediatric reference independent from what is available in the adult literature.
In the third edition of Liver Disease in Children, a cadre of truly international experts provides comprehensive and in-depth reviews of relevant topics in pediatric hepatology.
