About this book


An up-to-date and concise guide to the clinical management of pediatric endocrine disorders. The text covers the most common and challenging conditions seen by practicing endocrinologists and primary care physicians, including growth, hypothalamic, pituitary, adrenal, thyroid, calcium and bone, and reproductive disorders, as well as metabolic syndromes. Each chapter contains an introductory discussion of the problem, a review of the clinical features that characterize it, the criteria needed to establish a diagnosis, and a comprehensive therapy section delineating the risks and benefits of the best therapeutic options available. Invaluable tables summarize the critical factors in etiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and therapeutic dosages.

"The chapters are concise, packed with information and well referenced...the authors are leaders in their respective fields and their junior coauthors....The arrangement of diagnostic and management topics in easily readable tabular formats will also be useful in a busy office...Pediatric endocrinologists in training and in practice will appreciate the tables and flow-charts detailing diagnostic approaches, and the listed hormonal stimulation tests are also adequately informative for clinical use." - TRENDS in Endocrinology and Metabolism

"...this book is a superb clinical resource for pediatric residents, pediatricians, and other primary care providers for children as well as for adult and pediatric endocrinologists who need a reliable clinical guide to the management of pediatric endocrine disorders. Most other books on the disorders are much larger and less portable than this one and lack the practical details of medication regimens and testing protocols and that this book includes. The chapters are superbly written and edited, so that the book flows and is easy to read and digest from cover to cover. The editors, Sally Radovick and Margaret H. MacGillivray, have successfully achieved their goal of producing a concise clinical compendium of pediatric endocrine disorders that provides detailed guidelines for diagnosis and management." - The New England Journal of Medicine
