The Clinician's Practical Guide
editore: Humana Press Inc.
Leading physicians from a variety of medical specialties summarize their clinical experiences in treating pituitary adenomas in United States and the United Kingdom. Using simple language to describe their approaches, the authors describe the latest treatments for prolactinoma, acromegaly, Cushing's disease, and nonfunctioning pituitary tumors, and the latest surgical techniques. To round out the clinician's understanding of the illness, a patient describes the experience of diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. Comprehensive and accessible, "Management of Pituitary Tumors: The Clinician's Practical Guide" brings together all the medical fields involved in treating pituitary tumors, both for novices in the specialities that manage these cases, and for pituitary specialists seeking to understand better the contribution of other medical disciplines to the treatment of these tumors.
