Product description

This new edition of a successful and previously popular reference textbook covers all the relevant material in an organized fashion and to a slightly higher level than the earlier editions. The book is therefore suitable for MRCP students as well as undergraduates and can be carried forward to the clinical years without losing the continuity between physiology and pathophysiology. This is a comprehensive account of the general principles of endocrinology with a full physiological basis. It is fully up-to-date, covering the recent major developments and is improved with numerous additions and alterations. The clinical approach required by many courses is covered, and the normal functioning of the glands and hormones is closely linked with a discussion of related clinical problems. There is an increased number of line drawings and plates so that the book systematically includes clinical photographs of all important endocrinopathies and in this edition there is a small number of colour plates comprising a mini atlas.
