    Doody's Review Service
    Reviewer: Yazdan Yazdanpanah, M.D. M.Sc.(C.H.Tourcoing)
    Description: Each of this book's 12 chapters begins with a brief clinical case presentation that illustrates a practical viral hepatitis dilemma.
    Purpose: The book reports the latest advances in the diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for viral hepatitis and discusses how these scientific breakthroughs may benefit patients. Considering the recent advances in this area, these are worthy objectives and well met.
    Audience: The author identifies this book as of value to "the clinician who manages patients, infectious disease specialists, hepatologists, gastroenterologists and others who wish to better understand the developments and controversies regarding the diagnosis and treatment of chronic viral hepatitis." The authors are recognized authorities in viral hepatitis.
    Features: In this book, the authors describe how to diagnose and how to treat patients with chronic hepatitis B, C and D. The interesting feature is that a wide range of clinical situations are taken in to account: usual chronic hepatitis, chronic hepatitis in transplant, chronic hepatitis with persistently normal alanine aminotransferase, patients co-infected with HCV and HIV. The case study format of the chapters addresses the real-life intricacies of managing patients.
    Assessment: This book presents information on hepatitis diagnosis and treatment in a very simple and practical way. Readers are not overwhelmed with complicated fundamental considerations. It will therefore be of great help to clinicians in their daily task of treating patients.
