Overview

Written by Washington University residents, fellows, and endocrine faculty, this handbook is ideal for students, housestaff, and fellows involved in inpatient and outpatient endocrinology consults. It presents practical approaches to endocrine disorders commonly seen in consultation, with emphasis on key components of evaluation and treatment.

This Second Edition has been thoroughly updated with the latest information on pathophysiology, treatment, and drug dosing. New chapters cover obesity, vitamin D deficiency, autoimmune polyendocrine syndromes, and endocrine disorders in HIV/AIDS. Key points are bulleted for easy reference and clinical pearls are highlighted in bold-faced type.

The Washington ManualĀ® is a registered mark belonging to Washington University in St. Louis to which international legal protection applies. The mark is used in this publication by LWW under license from Washington University.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ronald N. Cohen, MD (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: Part of the Washington Manual series, this book presents focused, practical discussions of all major endocrine topics. Each chapter consists of an introduction to the topic, followed by a review of the causes, clinical presentation, appropriate management, and prognosis. Some final "key points to remember" are also included, along with a list of references for further reading. Helpful tables and diagrams describe the etiology and/or evaluation of each endocrine disorder.
Purpose: This is intended as a reference for students, house officers, and, potentially, endocrine fellows. It is a great introduction to endocrinology for students and house officers with limited previous exposure to the field. Each chapter is well written and includes enough material to effectively introduce the topic without being overwhelming. Individuals who want or require a more in-depth discussion of the topic are directed to additional articles, reviews, and books.
Audience: This book is particularly appropriate for medical students, interns, and residents who are taking care of patients with endocrine disorders.
Features: Almost all major endocrine diseases are covered, including hypothalamic and pituitary disorders, thyroid diseases, adrenal disorders, diabetes and obesity, reproductive diseases, and disorders of bone and mineral metabolism. There are also chapters on polyglandular autoimmune disorders and endocrine manifestations of HIV/AIDS. Although multiple authors have collaborated to produce this book, each chapter follows the same outline, and many include important diagrams and tables for easy reference.
Assessment: This is an excellent reference for students and house officers who are doing endocrinology rotations, either in the inpatient or outpatient setting.
