The thoroughly revised 4th edition presents definitive coverage of liver disease from over 100 expert contributors. Streamlined to cover the scientific aspects of liver disease as they apply to immediate clinical implications, this two-volume resource presents information on pathology, pathophysiology, and clinical diagnosis and management in a readable, engaging format. In this edition, the chapter on hepatitis has been divided into three complete chapters devoted to each virus - hepatitis A and E, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C - and an entirely new chapter has been added on other hepatitis viruses. From normal liver function and the systemic effects of liver dysfunction, through etiology, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment, these impressive volumes offer page after page of the most accurate, up-to-date information.
