This new title in the well established Colour Handbooks series combines the advantages of a short text book with those of a colour atlas. Reflecting the great advances in biochemical and radiological investigation, the authors also emphasise that diagnosis of many endocrine diseases still relies on the clinical acumen of physicians.
The Colour Handbook is a compact yet complete guide to the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine and metabolic disorders. It provides thorough discussion of each disease and a wealth of colour images. The book is of value to young physicians/residents, to trainee endocrinologists and to senior medical students.
