Walker’s Pediatric Gastrointestinal Disease, the definitive, two-volume reference work, is dedicated to the maintenance of a comprehensive approach to the practice of pediatric gastroenterology. In the sixth edition, each chapter author, selected because of particular expertise in the field, has provided an authoritative and comprehensive account of their topic. In addition, new sections have been added to reflect the expanding complexity of the field, particularly new techniques now used to accurately establish complex diagnoses.

As with previous editions, in the 6th edition the size and content of each section has been modified and new chapters added to reflect an increasing evolution of subspecialty programs within gastroenterology and a better understanding of subspecialty conditions (motility, inflammation, and autoimmune bowel disease) that have emerged in pediatric gastroenterology.

As the importance of genetics and molecular biology in the pathophysiology and diagnosis of complex pediatric conditions of the gut, pancreas, and liver have become appreciated, expanded chapters cover their importance in the field. Furthermore, a more comprehensive representation of world leaders in pediatric gastroenterology among the editors of this edition has expanded the authorship to reflect experts in specific diseases within various continents rather than principally in North America. In other words, the edition is dedicated to a comprehensive, worldwide approach to the practice of pediatric gastroenterology.
