97.51 MB PDF
This third edition of Principles and Practice of Endocrinology and Metabolism has been substantially and systematically revised. All of the chapters have been updated, many have been entirely rewritten, and many deal with completely new topics. Furthermore, additional important information and references have been added up until the very date of printing.
The new chapters covering topics that did not appear in depth in the prior edition include: Molecular Biology: Present and Future; Pituitary Tumors: Overview of Therapeutic Options; The Incidental Adrenal Mass; Appetite; Pancreas and Islet Transplantation; Syndrome X; Endocrine Effects on Lipids; Compendium of Growth Factors and Cytokines; The Endocrine Blood Cells; The Endocrine Adipocyte; and Endocrine Disorders in Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection.
We would like to welcome the authors of these chapters, and also the new authors who have updated, extensively revised, or have entirely rewritten chapters on topics that appeared in the last edition.
A new section has been added to this textbook: Endocrinology of Critical Illness. The six chapters comprising this section address the multiple aspects of this condition in a manner that is unique. Critical illness, which to some extent afflicts the great bulk of humankind at some time in their lives, has enormous hormonal and metabolic dimensions that relate directly to the diagnosis of the illness, influence the response of the host and the consequent evolution of the condition, and play a role in its outcome. The specific chapters include Critical Illness and Systemic Inflammation, Endocrine Markers and Mediators in Critical Illness, The Hypothalamic–Pituitary–Adrenal Axis in Stress and Critical Illness, Neuroendocrine Response to Acute versus Prolonged Critical Illness, Fuel Metabolism and Nutrient Delivery in Critical Illness, and Endocrine Therapeutics in Critical Illness. These subjects are of great importance to every endocrine clinician as well as many who are involved in fundamental endocrine research.
Overall, the goal of this textbook is to continue to provide, in a readable, understandable, and well-illustrated format, the clinical and basic information on endocrinology and metabolism that will be useful to both clinicians and basic scientists. We also wish this book to be a useful source of information for internists, house staff, and medical students. We have attempted to cover the field thoroughly and broadly, to include most of the known endocrine and metabolic disorders and hormonal messenger molecules, to furnish appropriate and current references, and to be of practical benefit to our readers.
