    Reviews & endorsements

    "The book admirably covers a vast amount of hepatology...The collection of color plates in the center of the book is a highlight...Since the publication of the first edition of Liver Disease in Children, it has been one of the core textbooks of pediatric hepatology. The third edition is up-to-date and has incorporated large amounts of new information. Once again, it is the essential pediatric hepatology textbook." New England Journal of Medicine

    "The chapters on cystic fibrosis, Alagille syndrome, viral hepatitis, medical and nutritional management of the infant with cholestasis and drug induced liver disease are particularly well written and easy to read...an excellent selection of color plates on a diverse number of topics...generally well illustrated throughout."
    Practical Gastroenterology
