Gastroenterology and Hepatology Lecture Notes is a comprehensive yet easy-to-read overview of luminal gastroenterology and hepatology. Covering the epidemiology, causes, clinical features, investigation, treatment and prognosis of all the main gut and liver conditions, it is ideal for both exam preparation and fact finding.

Key features include:

• A full range of new illustrations, including clinical photographs and scans, that clearly demonstrate signs and symptoms
• Sections on anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and epidemiology – written to enhance understanding of clinical features
• Essential information highlighted throughout the text
• Case-based self-assessment for each chapter helps retention of knowledge and puts it in its clinical context
• A new section of “best answer” MCQs
• New chapters on inflammatory bowel disease and different diagnosis of the upper GI tract
• Includes a companion website at www.lecturenoteseries.com/gastroenterology featuring 16 in-depth case studies

Whether learning the basics of the gastrointestinal system, starting a general medical or gastroenterological placement, or looking for a quick-reference overview to revise key concepts, 
Gastroenterology and Hepatology Lecture Notes is an ideal resource for medical students, MRCP or FRACP candidates, and junior doctors.

The content of any textbook has, by definition, got to be factual. There are two potential consequences of 
this. The first, and most important, is that medical fact is based on science, and we have based this book on 
the anatomical, physiological and pathological basis of gastrointestinal practice. The second potential consequence of a factual focus is that the text can become rather dry and list like. To limit this we have tried to present the information from a clinical perspective – as the patients present in outpatients or casualty.
Gastroenterology is well suited to such an approach. It is a fundamentally practical speciality, with a strong 
emphasis on history, examination and endoscopy. The importance of integrating clinical assessment with 
investigation – both anatomical and  physiological – is emphasised by the curiously limited range of symptoms despite the complexity of the gastrointestinal tract. The gut contains about three‐quarters of the 
body’s immune cells; it produces a wider range of hormones than any single endocrine organ; it has almost 
as many nerves as the spinal cord; it regulates the daily absorption of microgram quantities of vitamins simultaneously with macronutrients in 100 million times that amount
