The author examines each of the endocrine glands and covers such topics as sexual development, growth, weight, puberty, thyroid disorders, adrenal disorders, salt and water balance, calcium balance, glucose homeostasis, and neoplasia. He then suggests practical procedures for managing ailments in each of these areas, including tests, imaging, and drug treatment, with specific information on normal values for the tests and guides to drug dosages. The volume is illustrated throughout with photographs and clear, informative charts. For all pediatricians and endocrinologists, this book will be a vital resource on hormonal disorders in children.
