Review


'Overall, paediatric gastroenterologists and researchers with a keen interest in IBD will find it useful to have a personal copy of the book. It will serve as a good reference book not only for physicians, paediatricians, trainee residents and nutrition specialists, but also for families with children suffering from IBD.'

A practical approach to pediatric IBD
Chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) encompasses Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and indeterminate colitis. The distinct phenotype in pediatric and adolescent patients and the difference from adult IBD make early-onset IBD a unique subgroup requiring specific therapeutic considerations. In this book, leading experts from the USA, Europe and Israel present new data on the genetics, epidemiology, pathology and pathogenesis of pediatric IBD. Imaging and endoscopy in the diagnosis of IBD are also discussed. Extensive coverage is given to disease management, i.e. pharmacological, nutritional and surgical approaches, with special emphasis on growth failure and delayed puberty. The important topic of transition from pediatric to adult medical care is highlighted and a clinical and developmental timeline is proposed.

Offering practical information on IBD in infants, toddlers, children, adolescents and young adults, this book is essential reading for gastroenterologists, in particular pediatric gastroenterologists and trainees, as well as general pediatricians and nutritionists.
