About this book


Written cases provide a thoughtful review of modern management and contemplation of the literature, much more so than even a case presentation without the patient.  As a result, in recent years the written or prepared case has become the ideal forum for demonstrating how to manage a medical problem to the greatest benefit of the patient. In A Case-Based Guide to Clinical Endocrinology, distinguished clinicians provide stimulating instruction and insights into a wide variety of endocrine subjects, teaching readers modern management of the conditions described and offering targeted entry into the literature.  Importantly, many of the important elements in the current curriculum for clinical endocrine training as recommended by the Association of Program Directors in Clinical Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism are covered in this text. To reinforce learning and retention of knowledge, each author has also provided multiple choice questions following the case studies. Students, residents, fellows, and practitioners will find these examples to be an efficient way to review their understanding and increase their skills and abilities in patient investigation and management.

In all, A Case-Based Guide to Clinical Endocrinology offers a comprehensive volume of concise case-studies that will prove to be of significant importance to all clinicians practicing in this field.
