Summary
The name Schiff is synonymous with hepatology. Leon Schiff co-founded the AASLD in 1950 and was the main editor of this iconic book for the first 7 editions. Following Leon Schiff's death, his son Gene Schiff has taken on the lead editor role, and this 11th edition will be the 4th under his guidance. This edition focus on hepatology, it covers anatomy, pathology, testing, imaging, and effects of liver disease on other organs, before moving on to sections that address specific diseases and clinical syndromes. Sections begin with a clear overview and chapters with a key concepts section that helps the reader quickly assimilate the most noteworthy information. Its enormous appeal has been due clarity of text, combined with a sheer thoroughness in its breadth of content. The inclusion of these accessory features, as well as the fully updated chapter revisions, fresh contributor list, and the streamlined, more accessible one volume book will ensure that this book is as relevant as ever, that it always seeks to improve and evolve with each new edition, and that it retains its place as the key textbook for gastroenterologists and hepatologists, and specialist GI trainees treating patients with liver disease
