Distinguished clinician-scientists describe in concise studies their most difficult cases and reveal what they did, how they did it, and why. The cases cover a wide range of endocrine problems. Each case study reviews how the patient was managed, details the reasons why various tests and treatments-many only recently available-were carried out, and provides references to ensure that those novel methodologies can be easily translated into the endocrine specialist's daily practice. The authors provide practical solutions for these difficult-to-manage cases, and successfully apply knowledge fresh from the laboratory to decisions about patient management. Practical and stimulating, Challenging Cases in Endocrinology demonstrates for every clinical endocrinologist precisely how specialists approach their most challenging cases and how these approaches can be effectively applied in the daily practice of endocrinology.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is ideal for fellows...This is a unique addition to the endocrine literature. The cases are replete with interesting twists and clinical pearls; it is an entertaining read for endocrinologists with the time to enjoy cases and learn from the discussions." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"Most endocrinologists and probably quite a few non-endocrinologists are going to like this book for the same reason why 'Meet the Professor' sessions are overcrowded: it is endocrinology at its roots...stimulating and entertaining reading." - Diabetologia"Although Molitch is targeting the practicing endocrinologist, I believe this book would be useful for internists and other physicians who are always looking for interesting cases. Challenging Cases in Endocrinology is a light and easily read book that describes uncommon manifestations of common disorders and common manifestations of uncommon disorders. It reinforces the use of systematic work-up to come to a conclusion and diagnosis without missing any important signs or symptoms. The main strengths of the book are the short case discussions, system-based layout, and a solid literature review at the end of each discussion." -Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism
