Overview

This second edition of Clinical and Experimental Pheochromocytoma required over five years to prepare. Considerably expanded and updated since the first edition, it includes studies that appear to be relevant to pheochromocytoma in humans. In addition, it includes new contributions by 18 physicians and scientists who have special expertise in a variety of areas involving pheochromocytoma. Unusual and instructive, often fascinating, case reports are periodically presented to increase the clinician's awareness of the devastating consequences of missing the diagnosis. This second edition is extraordinary in depth and breadth of information, and it provides a remarkable resource to anyone interested in pheochromocytoma and to all those managing patients with hypertension.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A new edition of the indispensible text representing the historical and most recent research evidence of pheochromocytoma, a tumor that is difficult to diagnose (sometimes called the "great mimic"), lethal if untreated, and yet entirely curable in 90 percent of successfully recognized cases. Eighteen new contributors lend their expertise to the volume detailing the disease's background, catecholamine metabolism, origin, pathopharmacology, pathology, clinical manifestations, differential diagnosis, treatment, research, and case studies. Includes photographs and illustrations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
