This practical handbook presents the essential clinical information from Yamada's Textbook of Gastroenterology, fourth edition in a format that is ideal for rapid reference and review.

The first 20 chapters focus on approaches to patients with various symptoms and cover differential diagnosis, workup, and management. Subsequent chapters focus on diseases and discuss epidemiology, etiology, clinical features, testing, and management.
This edition includes several new chapters on liver diseases. Also included are chapters on endoscopy and imaging procedures.
