About this book

With a focus on practical patient related issues, Autoimmune Hepatitis: A Guide for Practicing Clinicians serves as a useful practical, and much needed, resource for all those physicians presented with managing patients diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis, both acutely and over the long term. It provides a basis for clinicians to understand the etiology of the disease, as well as special circumstances where management dilemmas often arise. Emphasis is given to providing management advice of immediate use to clinicians, something not presently offered by other larger general texts. The chapters are written by those with an expertise and training in this field and include the most up to date information. The book will be of great value to Gastroenterologists, Hepatologists, and Internists at all levels who see patients presenting with autoimmune hepatitis.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book provides a needed review of autoimmune hepatitis. … This concise book may find a home on the shelves of hepatologists and gastroenterologists and, because it is readable, it should be useful for students, GI/hepatology fellows, and midlevel providers dealing with liver patients and liver research in the area of autoimmune hepatitis. … Overall, this is a concise and well-written book on autoimmune hepatitis that is useful for a quick review … .” (Paul Angulo, Doody’s Review Service, November, 2012)
