Overview

A thoroughly revised edition by expert contributors presents definitive coverage of liver disease. This state-of-the-art text has been reorganized into two stand-alone volumes—the first volume deals with the basic sciences of biochemistry, physiology, and pathophysiology while the second is completely devoted to clinical issues. New chapters cover metabolism of collagen, autoimmune liver disease, clinical pharmacology of anti-viral agents, and AIDS and the liver.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel R. Ganger, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This third edition of an encyclopedic textbook of liver diseases appears six years after the last edition, with multiple authors under the guidance of the same editors.
Purpose: The purpose is to present thorough and balanced reviews of the pathophysiology of liver diseases. The book meets these worthy objectives, and this new edition was due.
Audience: It is intended for students of liver diseases: hepatologists, gastroenterologists, surgeons, and internists. The authors and editors are respected teachers, investigators, and clinicians in the specialty.
Features: This two-volume book is divided into 68 chapters in a reasonable format that allows the reader to rapidly find the issue of interest. The illustrations are of excellent quality and very pertinent. The references are current to 1995.
Assessment: This is now the most important textbook of hepatology. It reflects the major advances of the specialty and is an obligatory reference for all students of liver diseases. This third edition was badly needed. With its revised chapters, it is a significant contribution that maintains the excellent quality of previous editions.

From The Critics
Intent on making the burgeoning knowledge in the field manageable to practicing clinicians as well as students, the editors have assembled 61 essays which distill data from numerous primary references and provide current information on every facet of liver disease. The first section covers the anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry of liver function, as well as the porphyrias, hepatic fibrosis and cirrhosis. Subsequent sections cover systemic effects of liver disease, laboratory methods for evaluating liver disease, toxic injury and associated diseases, diagnosis of liver disease due to infectious agents, chronic forms of liver disease, tumors, pediatric liver disease, and diseases of the biliary tract. Zakim is a professor of medicine emeritus at Cornell University Medical College; Boyer is John J. Lee Professor of Medicine and Director of the Liver Research Institute at the University of Arizona. With a few exceptions (Europe, Japan, Hong Kong), contributors are from U.S. medical universities and institutes. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
