The Oxford Handbook of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition has been fully updated, with new chapters on transplantation, nutritional management, and liver function and biopsy to increase the breadth and depth of coverage of this range of closely related disciplines. Written by a team of experts at the top of their field, this handbook is a practical reference manual containing information on the day-to-day management of both rare and common conditions that are encountered by those who regularly see children with gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutritional problems.

Containing up-to-date information and clearly organised for ease of reference, management guidelines and references to key articles for further reading are included to make this handbook an invaluable resource for both established and trainee clinicians, as well as other members of multidisciplinary teams such as specialist nurses, dieticians, and pharmacists.
