Liver: A Complete Book on Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Diseases

The spectrum and etiology of liver diseases vary widely between East and West and hence the focus and experience of hepatologists also remain varied at two corners of the globe. Hepatology being perhaps one of the most flourishing and evolving discipline of medical sciences, a book with recent information written by experts from all over the world was much needed. The present book fulfills this need.

The book will serve as a useful reference manual to consultants, postgraduate students, and residents of Hepatology, Gastroenterology, Internal Medicine, Pathology, Virology, and Preventive Medicine as well as undergraduate clinical medical students.
