Endocrine Conditions in Pediatrics Book Review:

This book is aimed at primary care providers who care for the pediatric age group (general pediatrician, the PCP working with pediatric patients, and family medicine providers) with the goal of covering the endocrine differential diagnosis of common signs and symptoms of possible endocrine disease as well as appropriate initial laboratory evaluation and interpretation. While multiple pediatric endocrine textbooks exist, most of them are heavy in coverage of physiology and rare diseases, with less discussion of practical steps in evaluation and diagnosis. This book distinguishes itself through a very practical approach. The first section is organized by presenting signs and symptoms, the second section is organized by laboratory interpretation, and the third section provides summaries of common pediatric endocrine disorders. Chapters are concise, providing critical clinical information including clinical pearls, common diagnoses and important points in patient counseling. Written by experts in the field, Endocrine Conditions in Pediatrics is a valuable resource that provides general pediatricians and other primary care providers with all of the information they need to provide superb patient care before transferring to a pediatric endocrinologist when necessary.

Practical Algorithms in Pediatric Endocrinology Book Review:

A Karger 'Publishing Highlights 1890-2015' title Algorithms provide a logical, concise and cost-effective approach to medical reasoning: utilizing a concise, step-by-step approach based upon clues from the history, physical examination and laboratory studies, algorithms help avoid excessive unnecessary procedures and testing. The 2nd, revised edition of Practical Algorithms in Pediatric Endocrinology deals with practical issues of child growth, puberty, diseases of the endocrine glands, sexual differentiation, as well as aberrations of water, electrolyte, mineral and carbohydrate metabolism. Fifty clinical issues are covered by an algorithmic approach, breaking down long lists and tables of differential diagnosis into smaller, more manageable ones. Common clinical symptoms, signs and laboratory abnormalities are classified as they present themselves at the patient's bedside. This book is aimed at general practitioners and pediatricians, in particular those who are not exposed to pediatric endocrine problems on a daily basis, and at trainees in endocrinology and pediatric endocrinology as they acquire familiarity with clinical problem solving to make rational choices when facing clinical dilemmas.

Diagnostics of Endocrine Function in Children and Adolescents Book Review:

A multitude of new developments, not only in the rapidly advancing field of molecular genetics and steroid metabolism but in all traditional areas of pediatric endocrinology, have influenced the diagnostic approach in children and adolescents with endocrine disorders, thus warranting this 4th, revised and extended edition of 'Diagnostics of Endocrine Function in Children and Adolescents'. Several chapters have been revised completely and all have been thoroughly updated. In addition, new chapters dealing with the muscle-bone unit and bone metabolism have also been incorporated. The original format of the chapters, which are a combination of in-depth discussion of the diagnostic process, practical conclusions and expert advice based on extensive experience, was maintained. Easy-to-use tables and figures allow for quick reference. Flowcharts of possible diagnostic pathways lead to the most frequent diagnoses. Presenting a broad range of diagnostic approaches, test procedures, and normative data required for establishing diagnoses for a broad spectrum of endocrine disorders, this book is an indispensable reference tool not only for endocrinologists and pediatricians but also for professionals in other specialties seeking evidence-based, rapid diagnostic solutions as the basis of advice and therapy for their patients.
