This concise and practical book is designed for paediatricians and endocrinologists, trained or in training, who see children with endocrine problems. All the endocrine glands are covered, and the author has distilled his vast experience and expertise in this area to provide hard-hitting, practical advice on the diagnosis, management and treatment of the main endocrine disorders. It is not a heavily referenced tome but a monograph in the true sense of the word - a book in which an expert describes and discusses the area of his expertise for the benefit and interest of others. The volume is illustrated throughout and the text is also supplemented by many succinct and informative tables. The volume concludes with a short chapter on practical procedures, including endocrine tests, imaging, and drugs and doses.

• Concise, readable and helpful • Provides straightforward, hard-hitting advice • Helpfully illustrated throughout
