The proceedings of the fifth Skandia International Symposium devoted to regional enteritis (Crohn disease) published in this volume must represent something of a record for timely publication. This text is the best written, comprehensive, critical, and current single source of information available on this perplexing disease.

Chapters are written by recognized international experts in research and clinical fields; they are presented clearly and contain valuable, practical information. Excellent reviews plus original clinical research information on topics ranging from epidemiology, histopathology, and clinical pathophysiology through clinical and radiological diagnosis, surgical treatment, course, and prognosis are presented.

In addition to the superb quality, we are given the rare treat of critical and informative discussions
