Endocrine glands may be involved in patients with thalassemia major. In the last 20 years, new therapies have significantly improved life expectancy, while several endocrine abnormalities have been described in children, adolescents, and young adults suffering from thalassemia major.
The practical objective of this book is to establish guidelines for the management of endocrine disorders underlying the various phases of thalassemic life. Internationally acknowledged experts give a state-of-the-art account of physiopathological and therapeutical approaches to endocrine disorders in thalassemia and focus on such topics as growth hormones, thyroid diseases, puberty, hypogonadism, diabetes, and bone metabolism.
