An indispensable reference tool
The completely revised and expanded third edition offers a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the diagnostics of endocrine function as well as normal reference values for the differential diagnosis of the major endocrine disorders in the pediatric and adolescent age group. Leading international specialists present in-depth rational diagnostic strategies based on pathogenetic considerations and extensive personal experience. Recent developments in assay and imaging techniques are presented in detail, and their clinical relevance is evaluated. Easy-to-use tables and figures allow quick reference. Flowcharts of possible diagnostic pathways lead to the most frequent diagnoses.

With its broad range of diagnostic methods and protocols in compact and readable form, this volume will be an indispensable reference tool not only for endocrinologists but also for pediatricians and professionals in other specialties seeking guidance on how to deal with complex differential diagnostic situations
