A revised and expanded edition of Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Personal View (1985), this concise yet comprehensive work presents an interpretation of up-to-date research on diagnosis, testing, medications, and surgical treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The book is a distillation of the author's experience with this group of serious disorders during nearly a half-century as a clinical investigator and clinician at Mount Sinai Hospital. In this authoritative volume, Dr. Janowitz crystallizes his conceptual and therapeutic approaches to the study of these crippling and enigmatic disorders and offers his advice on their daily management. He also discusses special considerations such as problems in diagnosis, pregnancy, cancer, extraintestinal manifestations of IBD, nutrition, and the role of psychotherapy. This thorough and practical guide written by a renowned expert well-known for his patient-oriented approach will be invaluable to gastroenterologists, GI surgeons, internists, gastrointestinal fellows, and medical students.

Everyone who treats people with inflammatory bowel disease should read Janowitz's book from cover to cover. You can"t do better. Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology'
