Practical Pediatric Endocrinology in a Limited Resource Setting provides a guide for managing pediatric endocrine problems in a limited resource setting, together with an outline of the bases for these disorders. The book outlines a plan for coming to a likely diagnosis in situations where resources are constrained, and suggests ways to access more sophisticated technologies for diagnostic confirmation and extension of available tools. Further extending and complementing each chapter is a series of scenarios for use as teaching and learning tools. Together with a clinical question, all chapters include a suggested outline for assessment that assists readers facing similar situations in daily practice. Each scenario works through a typical series of deductive steps used to establish a working diagnosis, while considering both a differential diagnosis and reminding readers of current knowledge around the subject matter. Provides a working knowledge of pediatric endocrinology, from the viewpoint of practical application, for residents and clinicians practicing in settings with scarce material resources Features clinically based chapters, empahsising workable diagnoses and management plans in limited resource situations Includes information on Type 1 diabetes mellitus, given its increasing prevalence worldwide Describes basic research techniques and planning, intended to foster collaboration between colleagues and other centers in clinical or basic research, which can inform clinical practice and drive innovation

Ten years ago a group of experts assembled in Chicago to develop a consensus on the management of conditions previously described as intersex. The consequences of this consensus have been far reaching, including a change in nomenclature, the development of greater collaboration across geographical boundaries, and a move towards greater involvement of patients and parents. Moreover, an international registry was established, as well as research and clinical networks. This book brings together a thorough overview on all these topics. Furthermore, the major technological advances in diagnostic genetic and biochemical capabilities over the past 10 years are outlined in detail. Offering a comprehensive update on various aspects of disorders of sex development (DSD), this book will be essential reading to all clinicians who are involved in delivering health care to patients with a DSD, as well as scientists involved in biomedical research related to DSD.

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' 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 2014' covers the medical and scientific literature from June 2013 through May 2014.
