One of a series of books in the series of "Problem Solving", this book presents a comprehensive case load of patient disorders seen by the general practitioner and endocrinologist. At the beginning of each case are a few practical questions to stimulate the reader. This is then followed by clinical presentation and the reader is led through the logical work-up to reach a diagnosis. An algorithm accompanies most cases to provide a pictorial quick overview of the clinical steps. References are key but kept to a minimum. Each of the major areas of endocrinology are covered: thyroid, adrenal gland, pituitary, reproduction, growth and development, calcium and bone, endocrine hypertension, water, electroytes and glucose. The authors also conclude with a section on therapeutic aspects. The chief author, Professor Lee Kennedy, is a British expatriate, now in a leading clinical role in Australia. Lee has experience in numerous clinical areas and is involved with teaching medical students.
