Oxford Textbook of Clinical and Biochemical Disorders of the Skeleton 2e is a definitive reference providing comprehensive coverage of common polygenic and rare monogenic disorders, emphasizing new advances in bone cell biology and human skeletal disease. With an up-to-date account of common and rare metabolic disorders of the skeleton, including their causes, clinical aspects, and treatment, this book offers the reader clarity in the complex field of the molecular biology of the skeleton. Topics covered include bone biology and investigation,osteoporosis, osteomalacia and rickets, parathyroid bone disease, Paget disease, and the effects of malignancy on the skeleton. Newer metabolic bone disorders are also included, along with chapters on osteogenesis imperfecta, skeletal dysplasias, osteopetrosis and osteosclerosis, Marfan syndrome,Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, fibrous dysplasia, and ectopic mineralisation.Essential for postgraduates and clinicians, this accessible and highly illustrated book provides a clear authoritative account of metabolic bone diseases in their widest sense. Bringing together considerable advances in the field, it discusses molecular causes and personal experiences of alldisorders, ensuring a comprehensive and didactic reference.Enriched with over 100 new illustrations and revised chapters to reflect a rapidly developing field, this second edition will be indispensable for those who look after patients with metabolic bone disease, including general physicians, rheumatologists, endocrinologists, and orthopaedic surgeons,along with paediatricians and geneticists.

Editorial Reviews

"In this excellent book, the authors have succeeded in clarifying the complex and potentially bewildering field of the molecular biology of the skeleton... The authors are to be congratulated on this magisterial book. The extent of their knowledge is prodigious, and with their clarity ofpresentation they have produced a masterpiece." --The Journal of Bone and joint Surgery, Vol 87, No 1
