Summary
A concise, authoritative dictionary of diseases of the digestive system, providing a single recommended name and precise definition for each of some 600 clinical entities. The nomenclature features ten chapters arranged according to anatomical and morphological features. Gastric and duodenal ulcers and complications of gastric surgery are covered in a separate chapter, as are tumours and tumour-like lesions. Each disease or syndrome for which a name is recommended is defined as unambiguously, and yet as briefly, as possible. A complete list of synonyms is also included.
