Description

This compact yet complete guide to the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine and metabolic disorders combines the advantages of a short text book with those of an atlas, and provides thorough discussion of each disease supported by a wealth of images. Each topic is covered by a specialist contributor. While reflecting the great advances in biochemical and radiological investigation, the authors emphasize that diagnosis of many endocrine conditions still relies on the clinical acumen of physicians.

Reviews

…good value for money considering the number of illustrations… suitable for medical students through to junior specialist registrars… More senior endocrinologists would find this a useful resource for teaching material… well presented and up to date summary algorithms… a useful book to have on the shelf in any department of endocrinology and could be essential reading for every new specialist registrar.

—Wui Hang Cheung, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, September 2011

The book is well written with clear and concise explanations covering essential content. The high-quality illustrations are an added bonus, providing classic pictures of each disease that otherwise would only be obtainable after years of clinical experience…easier [than other books] to read through quickly and acquire the basic knowledge needed for the diagnosis and management of each disorder. (3 stars)
