About this book


This text provides a detailed update on current diagnostic and therapeutic techniques useful in the management of a broad spectrum of pituitary disorders.  The contents reflect the multidisciplinary approach needed for patients with disorders of the pituitary gland, with contributions from both endocrinologists and neurosurgeons, as well as specialty contributions from radiologists, ophthalmologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists, and neurologists.  The book focuses on each pituitary tumor subtype, and contains additional chapters related to other lesions of the sella, including tumor management during pregnancy and in the pediatric age group.

From the reviews:

"The diagnosis and treatment of all major diseases of the anterior pituitary are covered in detail in this book, with an emphasis on the different types of pituitary adenomas. … This book is addressed primarily to practicing endocrinologists, though it will be helpful for all physicians taking care of patients with pituitary diseases. … is an excellent choice for endocrinologists and other physicians looking for a single book on pituitary disorders. It is a well written and comprehensive update on both diagnosis and treatment." (Ronald N Cohen, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2008)
