Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease


This much-anticipated textbook focuses on the pediatric aspects of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).It covers diagnostic approaches, special nutrition, growth, and bone density, as well as psychosocial considerations that are specific to the young and may thus not exist in adults.Chapters discuss topics including IBD genetics, immunology, epidemiology, and pharmacogenomics.The book also covers diagnosis (clinical, laboratory, radiologic, histologic and endoscopic), nutritional and growth aspects, psychosocial issues, extraintestinal manifestations, and management (divided into medical, nutritional and surgical therapy).Special consideration is given to new biologic therapeutics. In addition, several short chapters address issues of perianal IBD, cancer surveillance, alternative therapy and transition to adult care.The book features many visual aids, including tables, figures, schemes, algorithms, as well as endoscopy and surgery images.
