Summary This compact yet complete guide to the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine and metabolic disorders combines the advantages of a short text book with those of an atlas, and provides thorough discussion of each disease supported by a wealth of images. Each topic is covered by a specialist contributor. While reflecting the great advances in biochemical and radiological investigation, the authors emphasize that diagnosis of many endocrine conditions still relies on the clinical acumen of physicians.
