Highly practical and concise, this hands-on guide focuses on specific common clinical scenarios. Each section covers a particular area of the GI tract and follows a regular structure of: overview of
normal function, physiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, diagnostic tests, and treatment. Color-coded text features, such as key facts, potential pitfalls and practice
tips, and concise, bulleted paragraphs make the information easy to find and assimilate. Multiple choice questions, clinical cases, a short picture gallery of the most common GI conditions, and a
comparison of the major societies' guidelines (BSG, ASG, ACG, UEGF) make this the perfect tool for reference or review.
