The Pituitary 4th Edition PDF
54.01 MB PDF
The fourth edition of The Pituitary follows three widely read prior volumes published in 1995, 2002, and 2011. This textbook continues the tradition of a cogent blend of basic science and clinical medicine which was the successful hallmark of prior editions. The comprehensive text written by expert pituitary scholars is devoted to the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of pituitary disorders. The new fourth edition is extensively revised to reflect new knowledge derived from advances in genomics, molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, diagnostics, and therapeutics as they apply to the pituitary gland. Notably, new chapters devoted to genetics of pituitary tumor syndromes, atypical adenomas, and psychiatric dysfunction related to pituitary disease have been added to complement a comprehensive updated description of pituitary physiology, as well as management options for patients harboring pituitary tumors or exhibiting features of pituitary failure.
The wide spectrum of clinical disorders emanating from dysfunction of the “master gland” is described in detail, as is the fundamental science underlying pituitary dysfunction. Descriptions of mechanisms for disease pathogenesis provide the reader with an indepth understanding of both subcellular and extrinsic mechanisms subserving normal and disordered pituitary hormone secretion and action.
I am especially indebted to my erudite expert colleagues for their creative scholarly contributions and dedicated efforts in compiling this extensive body of knowledge for students, trainees, physicians, and scientists geared to understanding pituitary function and caring for patients with pituitary disorders. Our desire is to continue to provide medical and doctoral students, clinical and basic endocrinology trainees, endocrinologists, internists, pediatricians, gynecologists, and neurosurgeons with a comprehensive yet integrated text devoted to the science and art of pituitary medicine.
