Endocrine Neoplasms / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Springer US
The past several years have been a time of intense excitement and major advances in the understanding and treatment of endocrine neoplasms. This is, therefore, an excellent point at which to undertake a broad-based overview of the 'state of the art' in endocrine neoplasia for the Cancer Treatment and Research series. The organization of this volume reflects both the organ-specific and more generalized aspects of endocrine tumorigenesis. Some chapters are focused on tumors of specific endocrine glands, e.g. pituitary, para-thyroid, thyroid, adrenal, etc. More general themes in pathogenesis, diagnosis or treatment are also addressed, e.g. in chapters on radiation-induced tumors, somatostatin analogs and receptors, persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia of infancy and paraneoplastic hypercalcemia. Finally, special issues of importance to the understanding and management of the familial endocrine tumor syndromes MEN-1 and MEN-2 are separately discussed.
