An overview of the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease is contained in this valuable two-volume publication. Chapters include discussions of experimental animal models for enteritis, colitis and colon cancer.

The clinical aspects of inflammatory bowel disease are presented, with sections describing symptoms and signs, fertility and pregnancy, special features of childhood disease, and disease in the elderly, and complications.

In addition, pathologic aspects are included, with chapters on the pathology of idiopathic ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and ultrastructure features. In summary, the therapy of idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease is discussed especially for gatroenterologists, graduate students and clinicians from various disciplines involved in the management of its complications.
