Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The diagnosis and treatment of all major diseases of the anterior pituitary are covered in detail in this book, with an emphasis on the different types of pituitary adenomas. . This book is addressed primarily to practicing endocrinologists, though it will be helpful for all physicians taking care of patients with pituitary diseases. . is an excellent choice for endocrinologists and other physicians looking for a single book on pituitary disorders. It is a well written and comprehensive update on both diagnosis and treatment." (Ronald N Cohen, Doody's Review Service, July, 2008)
