Treatment and Management of Tropical Liver Disease Offering a unique, comprehensive overview of common and uncommon liver diseases found in the tropics and resource-constrained regions, Treatment and Management of Tropical Liver Disease provides practical information and insights on both diagnosis and treatment. It offers valuable details on acute and chronic viral and parasitic hepatic infections, bacterial and fungal infections, liver masses, autoimmune diseases, and other liver-related maladies typically found in the tropics. An expert global author team covers making a diagnosis with imaging techniques most likely found in specific regions, offers guidance on managing patients in areas with limited resources once a diagnosis has been established, and discusses how to manage patients with chronic liver disease with a focus on cost-effectiveness and quality of life.

  • Includes a summary and tables with specific guidance on the diagnosis and management of each liver disease, enabling you to easily find the information you need.
  • Contains a pathophysiology guide in every chapter to help you quickly determine the immune and epigenetic mechanisms that affect common liver diseases when they occur in tropical regions.
  • Covers key topics such as liver flukes, tropical hepatosplenomegaly, and much more, all highlighted with ultrasound images, clinical photos, and full-color line drawings.
  • Provides guidance on the interpretation and management of liver masses using imaging techniques commonly performed in resource-limited settings.
  • Provides a unique, detailed review of essential information for hepatologists, global health specialists, and other clinicians who have an interest in this complex field.
