Clinical perspectives on a topic of growing concern
Continuing advances in the management of childhood malignancies result in a rapidly growing number of childhood cancer survivors. However, many of them experience treatment-induced ‘late effects’ including a significant number of endocrine dysfunctions.
In this book experts in the field of late effects of childhood cancer treatment offer clinical insight into pertinent issues such as the impact of cancer therapies on growth, puberty and hypothalamic and pituitary function, male and female fertility, obesity, and metabolic and bone problems.
Multidisciplinary long-term follow-up of these patients is essential to monitor, treat and prevent morbidity. Therefore this volume is of great interest to pediatric endocrinologists and oncologists, adult and reproductive endocrinologists, primary care practitioners, nurses and nurse practitioners as well as others involved in planning and delivering the holistic care which this increasingly numerous and important group of patients requires.
