About this book


This work offers a comprehensive reference guide to help clinicians in the field of Internal Medicine address common aspects of endocrinology in their daily practice. The exponential growth in our knowledge of biomedicine calls for continuous multidisciplinary approaches across specialists and disciplines. In this volume, recognized experts in each given area explore the complex mechanisms linking endocrinological disorders to abnormalities of the cardiovascular system, kidney, liver and gastrointestinal tract, autoimmune, neuro-psychiatric, rheumatic, hematological, and dermatologic diseases. Aspects connected to critically ill and elderly patients are also examined, helping to enhance daily interactions with the most fragile populations observed in clinical medicine.

The individual chapters are designed to deliver the required information while explaining pathophysiological mechanisms with the help of figures, flow-charts and updated guidelines. The book offers a valuable

resource for all clinicians, residents, specialists and physicians who manage systemic diseases.
