In Adrenal Disorders, a panel of distinguished physicians and researchers select the most relevant new findings and integrate them into the existing body of clinical knowledge on adrenal pathologies. The book includes important reviews of disturbances in cortisol homeostasis, and new concepts regarding adrenal tumors and hereditary adrenal diseases. Also discussed are mineralocorticoids and the syndromes of mineralocortoid excess and aldosterone synthase deficiency. Authoritative and insightful, Adrenal Disorders provides physicians and scientists with a comprehensive, state-of-the-art practical guide to the devastating diseases of the adrenals that are so often difficult to diagnose and treat.

Editorial Reviews

"This is an up-to-date book on the adrenal gland encompassing the latest information on the physiology and diseases...This book, authored by the experts in the field, is written in a clear manner and despite the multiple authors, is quite uniform in its style, a credit to the editors. It is an important book to be read by clinical endocrinologists and researchers in the field of adrenal hormones...This is a unique book in the excellent series Contemporary Endocrinology. This should be on the bookshelf, or at least available, to endocrinologists and endocrine fellows in training. It will clarify many issues in the evaluation and treatment of patients with adrenal disorders." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"...The book includes new insights into a number of clinical conditions, with surprising results. Margioris and Chrousos have skillfully woven together the physiological background and clinical practice to produce a collection that brings clinicians up to date regarding the pathophysiology of adrenal disorders and uses physiology to point toward patterns of disease that, to date, have remained unexplained...there is a wealth of carefully thought-out approaches to clinical problems. The result, in many of the chapters, is a personal approach that avoids the anecdotal and is based on sound evidence and tested experience...The clinical content is well illustrated with clinical management pathways, which greatly enhance the text...The editors have gone one step further in promoting evidence-based practice by soliciting chapters from research groups with a large number of patients..."-The New England journal of Medicine"Clearly and concisely written with many references, it is recommended for pediatric and adult endocrinologists as well as gynecologists and endocrinologists." -Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism
