This book helps bring the busy practitioner up to date with recent developments in research on diarrhea that has taken place over the past 10 years. The causes of diarrhea are very diverse and include infections, allergies, chronic inflammatory diseases, tumors and inborn errors of intestinal digestion and transport.
The global importance of diarrheal deaths and illnessess, as well as the rapid technical advances that have occurred in this field, have generated a vast amount of literature that is not easily accessible to most practicing doctors. This single volume brings this literature together in a logical, concise and clear manner that puts diarrhea and its management into a clinical perspective. Practicing physicians, pediatricians, internists and senior students will find this book of particular interest; it will also be useful for professionals in public health, community medicine, nursing and microbiology who want a comprehensive understanding of diarrhea. Authors from Europe, Britain, Australia, and South America bring authoritative views on this subject, including its importance in developing countries and disadvantaged communities.
