Editorial Reviews

Bernard L. Silverman
This is a comprehensive textbook of the basic science of pediatric endocrinology. Dr. Mark Sperling is the editor of third edition of this book, previously edited by Dr. Solomon Kaplan in 1982 and 1990. The purpose is to combine recent advances in molecular endocrinology with the diagnosis and treatment of hormonal disorders in children. This is a worthy objective, achieved to a variable extent. Intended for all physicians who care for children suspected of having endocrine disorders, it is best suited for those with an interest in endocrinology. The authors of the individual chapters are acknowledged experts in their fields. The illustrations are plentiful and usually help to clarify the text. References are current and extensive. This is a portable book, increasing its usefulness for residents and students. Subjects are well indexed. This new edition includes a wealth of new information, largely derived from the study of the molecular basis of hormonal disorders. In most chapters, this information sheds light on clinical disorders. Unfortunately, in some chapters, minute details of molecular pathology have supplanted the clinical wisdom of the previous edition. The separate discussion of neonatal endocrine disorders is helpful, but cross referencing between chapters is inadequate throughout. This book will be useful for those learning or practicing pediatric endocrinology and deserves a place in the library of every hospital with a pediatric service.
