The name Schiff is synonymous with hepatology. Leon Schiff co-founded the AASLD in 1950 and was the main editor of this iconic book for the first 7 editions. Following Leon Schiff's death, his son Gene Schiff has taken on the lead editor role, and this 11th edition will be the 4th under his guidance. As a result, Schiff's Diseases of the Liver has been widely accepted as the number 1 clinical hepatology reference book for over 50 years.

With its strength being its strong clinical focus on hepatology, it covers anatomy, pathology, testing, imaging, and effects of liver disease on other organs, before moving on to sections that address specific diseases and clinical syndromes. Sections begin with a clear overview and chapters with a key concepts section that helps the reader quickly assimilate the most noteworthy information. Its enormous appeal has been due clarity of text, combined with a sheer thoroughness in its breadth of content. Key features include:

  • 4-colour throughout

  • Section overviews begin each of the sections

  • Key Concepts outlines start chapters

  • Treatment guidelines and management algorithms for every disease

  • A full liver transplant section

The 11th edition will see all chapters fully revised and refreshed with the latest in clinical information, once again providing the most up to date textbook for the clinician. 50% of the contributors chosen will be new names, adding a fresh approach to each chapter. It will include new chapters on:

  • liver injury due to nutritional intervention;

  • liver injury due to herbal/alternative medicines;

  • transplantation in patients with cancer;

  • living related donor transplantation.

New to the 11th edition will be a companion website accompanying the print book containing a range of containing accessory material, including:

  • 100 multiple choice questions of the standard used in ABIM board exams in gastroenterology 

  • All 450+ figures from the book in a high-quality, fully transportable and downloadable electronic format

  • High-quality video clips of a variety of surgical procedures, ie liver transplantation, all fully linked to the text

  • 35 case studies featuring real-life clinical scenarios. 

The inclusion of these accessory features, as well as the fully updated chapter revisions, fresh contributor list, and the streamlined, more accessible one volume book will ensure that Schiff’s Diseases of the Liver is as relevant as ever, that it always seeks to improve and evolve with each new edition, and that it retains its place as the key textbook for gastroenterologists and hepatologists, and specialist GI trainees treating patients with liver disease.
