The editors, both of whom are experienced instructors, have created a systematic review of diseases and disorders of the digestive system and in self-assessment, problem-oriented form designed to educate rather than just to test the reader. They provide 193 clinical cases covering a broad range of digestive, gut lumen, pancreatic and biliary problems likely to be present in both adult and paediatric patients. Relevant digestive tract physiology, pharmacology and nutrition topics are also included. The cases, featuring structured commentary, appear in random order reflecting clinical practice, and covering investigation, diagnosis and management strategies. The book will appeal to primary care physicians, to endoscopy nurses, to medical students, subspecialty trainees and re-certifying practitioners.
