Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Research in all aspects of paediatric liver diseases remains sparse, with much of our current knowledge based on extrapolations from adult studies or data from single centres focusing on single conditions. Given the heterogenous group of hepatic disorders encountered within childhood, more extensive research is required to not only uncover the aetiology of these conditions but also to provide evidence-based treatment pathways and details on the natural history and management of these often-rare diseases into adulthood. We wish to invite you and your colleagues to contribute to our upcoming Special Issue of Children (Impact Factor 2.8), focusing on all aspects of liver disease in children to highlight data and advances on causes and treatment and to help design prospective studies to answer fundamental questions in this field.

Dr. Paul Henderson
Guest Editor
