Practical Endocrinology and Diabetes in Children is the ideal bench-side companion for the practising paediatrician and endocrinologist, bridging the gap between large reference books and short reviews of aspects of endocrinology. This new edition contains helpful features which are accessible at a moment’s notice for the busy clinician, such as key web links, guidelines and case studies illustrating diagnostic difficulties.
The book provides a highly clinical, concise and up-to-date account of paediatric endocrinology and diabetes in a clear and user friendly format. There are sections on how to deal with emergencies, as well as information on potential pitfalls, controversial areas and future developments.
Practical Endocrinology and Diabetes in Children is an essential guide for trainee paediatricians, paediatric endocrinologists and diabetologists as well as diabetes and endocrinology nurse specialists.
