“An excellent up-to-date comprehensive and practical text book dealing with all aspects of paediatric hepatobiliary disease.

“An excellent up-to-date comprehensive and practical text book dealing with all aspects of paediatric hepatobiliary disease. It will be useful to both generalists and specialists as it is clinically focused with a problem-solving approach and should be useful for day-to-day as well as more esoteric clinical problems. I found it useful in my general paediatric practice and my trainees have also found it useful. It is very practical with a diagnostic approach and lots of tables and clinical pathways to follow when confronted with day-to-day clinical problems.
