Clinical Pediatric Endocrinology is established as the leading international work of reference in the field, covering endocrine disorders, their diagnosis and treatment. The boundaries of this branch of pediatrics are wide and difficult to define, but a comprehensive approach is taken here: the book covers the disorders of classic hormones as well as those of growth factors and regulatory peptides and neuroendocrinology. The use of diagnostic testing - particularly using molecular and genetic methods - and diagnostic imaging are well covered. The clinical descriptions are well supported by photographs - included in colour in a plate section for the first time (and positioned by their reference in the text as a halftone). The sections on investigation and management are also extensive.
