Abstract Now in a revised and expanded second edition, this concise, straightforward and clearly written text presents the latest information on the evaluation and management of common issues and conditions in pediatric endocrinology. Endocrinologists, pediatricians, family physicians, residents, fellows and medical students will all benefit from the discussion of endocrine physiology and its application to common clinical practice. As in the original edition, the text presents the major signs and symptoms in the diagnosis and management of pediatric endocrine disorders, often allowing the practitioner to avoid an unnecessary consultation and preparing a provider for informed communication with parents of a child with an endocrine condition. The concepts covered in the text are designed to address the first 10 headings in the content outline of the Sub-board of Pediatric Endocrinology of The American Board of Pediatrics: disorders of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis, growth, calcium metabolism and bone, the thyroid gland, puberty, and the adrenal gland, among others. Concluding each chapter is a Suggested Reading section, directing the reader to outstanding larger and more detailed texts, manuscripts and websites that offer increased detail. Practical and user-friendly, Pediatric Endocrinology, Second Edition is not simply a checklist of everything that could be done but leads the reader toward a more specific goal of what should be done.
