    Summary: This book provides a comprehensive account on individually rare, but collectively frequent diseases of the liver. In the first part, conditions such as hepatic vascular malformations, ischemic cholangiopathy, hepatic artery occlusion, sinusoidal conditions and Budd-Chiari syndrome are discussed among others. The second part examines the causes of vascular liver disease namely, coagulation disorders, neoplasm disorders, non-malignant blood disorders, systemic diseases and toxins, among others. The unique expertise of the authors, who are all members of the Vascular Liver Disease Disorders Group, an independent network of researchers with a common interest in Vascular Liver Diseases, are merged for an optimal pragmatic and individualized approach. This book is of interest to a broad range of experts, such as hepatologists, internists, radiologists and angiologists.
