About this title
Oxford Specialist Handbooks
The paediatric endocrinologist deals not only with common problems involving growth, puberty, and diabetes, but also with specific hormonal defects involving glands such as the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenals, and pituitary. These can vary from common variants of normals that will be encountered by all doctors dealing with children, to more rare disorders requiring specialist input.
Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes is written by two experienced paediatric endocrinologists, and deals with anatomy and physiology before moving on to identification, investigation and management of specific endocrine disorders. As well as covering common and less common endocrine problems, it also contains chapters on endocrine investigations and endocrine emergencies, specially designed for quick reference. The handbook is aimed at junior doctors in training both as specialists and as general paediatricians, as well as at specialist nurses in endocrinology and diabetes, but will also be of interest to consultants in general paediatrics, and to paediatricians with an interest in endocrinology and diabetes.
