Endocrinology has been written to meet the requirements of today's
trainee doctors and the demands of an increasing number of degree courses in
health and biomedical sciences, and allied subjects. It is a truly integrated
text using large numbers of real clinical cases to introduce the basic
biochemistry, physiology and pathophysiology underlying endocrine disorders and
also the principles of clinical diagnosis and treatment.
This book covers the following topics: Hypothyroidism, Fertility and
Pregnancy, Congenital Hypothyroidism, Growth in Children with Thyroid
Dysfunction, Hypothyroidism in Children, Non-Thyroidal Illness: Physiopathology

The Endocrine Sequence
teaches the basic principles of hormone secretion and action and the clinical
disorders which result from abnormalities of hormonal activity.Emphasis will be
placed on understanding pathophysiology and being able to use general principles
in endocrine phsyiology or in the management of endocrine disorders in
