Endocrine Pathology integrates classical diagnostic anatomic pathology with recent developments in immunochemistry and molecular biology in its approach to endocrine disorders. The book discusses not only a wide range of diseases commonly encountered in everyday clinical practice but also those uncommon conditions elucidated by such innovative techniques as ultrastructural immunochemistry and in situ hybridization.
