The go-to guide for managing endocrine problems in children – completely updated for today’s practice Part of the Pediatric Practice series, Pediatric Practice: Endocrinology is an outstanding clinical analysis and decision-making tool for those treating endocrine problems in children. Featuring an innovative problem-oriented approach, this well-illustrated, full-color guide skillfully integrates pathophysiology with clinical management. Numerous figures illustrate the principles of normal and abnormal physiology and treatment rationale and effects. Since an understanding of the clinical manifestations and treatments of endocrine disorders begins with knowledge of concepts of hormone action and principles of feedback control, the first chapter, "General Concepts and Physiology," links genetics, cell biology, and physiology with pathophysiology to provide a clear and approachable overview of endocrine systems. Subsequent chapters discuss disorders of growth, puberty, thyroid and adrenal glands, sex development, calcium and bone metabolism, water homeostasis, and carbohydrate metabolism and its comorbidities. In this second edition, contributing authors have updated all chapters. Important additions include sections on genetics for the endocrinologist in the general concepts chapter, an overview of the physiology and treatment of metabolic syndrome and dyslipidemia in the obesity chapter, and the addition of a new chapter on enteric hormones.

The body of knowledge in most medical specialties is rapidly expanding, making it virtually impossible to follow all advances in clinical and basic sciences that are relevant to a given field. This is particularly true in pediatric endocrinology, at the cross-road of pediatrics, endocrinology, development and genetics. Providing abstracts of articles that report the year's breakthrough developments in the basic sciences and evidence-based new knowledge in clinical research and clinical practice that are relevant to the field, the Yearbook of Pediatric Endocrinology 2011 keeps busy clinicians and scientists, pediatric endocrinologists, and also pediatricians and endocrinologists informed on new advances. Twelve Associate Editors and their co-authors selected from several thousand papers those that brought the most meaningful new information, summarized them and provided comments to put them into perspective. The papers are classified into those that identify new genes involved in diseases, new hormones, concepts revised or re- centered, important observations for clinical practice, large-scale clinical trials, new mechanisms, new paradigms, important review articles, new fears and new hopes. Because the Yearbook is endorsed by the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE), its publication is linked to the annual meeting of the ESPE. The Yearbook of Pediatric Endocrinology 2011 covers the medical and scientific literature from June 2011 through May 2012.

This first edition of Principles and Practice of Pediatric Endocrinology brings together 30 authors from 4 countries to present an update on the molecular basis of endocrine disorders in infants, children and adolescents as well as the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions. It is intended for the use of practitioners, fellows and clinical and “bench-top” researchers in this field, and presents advances in each of 12 areas of the normal and abnormal endocrine state. The work is a tribute to all those past and present whose research and clinical efforts resulted in the rapidly increasing accumulation of knowledge in this field, and includes comprehensive, practical clinical presentations in the form of an Atlas following each chapter after the comprehensive introductory chapter by Drs. Root and Rogol. This publication owes a great debt to Lawson Wilkins, a Baltimore pediatrician who first formally established the separate discipline of pediatric endocrinology, to Edwards Park, Fuller Albright, Bob Blizzard, Claude Migeon, Harold and Helen Harrison, James Tanner and to so many others: giants upon whose shoulders pediatric endocrinologists stand. Disorders of growth and pubertal development are the cornerstones of pediatrics as they are present in many children with chronic illness as well as in children whose growth and pubertal development are influenced by genetics and family history. These may have identifiable causes in pituitary, thyroid, adrenal or gonadal function, and examples are well represented in this book. Obesity and diabetes (types I and 2) are, likewise, diseases of childhood that are becoming increasingly and significantly prevalent and are included in this work. Disorders of calcium/phosphorus (especially the often forgotten but not gone Vitamin D deficiency rickets) and water metabolism are presented, and errors of sexual differentiation (an increasingly controversial issue) are highlighted. It is the hope of the editors that this work will assist the practitioner and researcher in this field in his or her efforts to diagnose, treat and establish the etiology of endocrine disorders in infants, children and adolescents.

Practical Paediatric Problems in Primary Care

View: 925

General practitioners (GPs) and other members of the Primary Health Care Team (PHCT) play a crucial role in the provision of health care for children. At least 25% of GP consultations are with children, and many of the problems encountered are specific to this population group. However, children do not represent a homogeneous population and several ages of childhood are recognised, each with its unique set of illnesses and problems: the neonate, infant, pre-school child, school age child and the adolescent. Furthermore, both the childhood population and their illnesses change with time; new illnesses such as HIV have appeared and others, not seen for many years (such as rickets, tuberculosis and congenital rubella syndrome) have returned. Thus a comprehensive knowledge of the varied aspects of child health is needed; recognition of the acutely ill child, developmental surveillance, immunisation, treatment of chronic illness, and psycho-social issues. GPs are also increasingly involved in influencing configuration and the commissioning of services at a local level. This textbook provides practical guidance for GPs, GP registrars, practice nurses and health visitors dealing with child health in the 21st century. It undertakes a focused, problem-orientated approach based on the more common childhood problems encountered by GPs. Each chapter includes the essential background theory, but the emphasis is on making the clinical approach relevant and sensitive to primary care. Solutions to clinical scenarios are provided, based upon current, best available evidence. Site and system specific chapters are combined with sections looking at wider issues such as ethics and law, multicultural issues, and immunisation.
