SUMMARY

Drawing on the latest advances in the fields of developmental, molecular, and structural biology, Diseases of the Pituitary: Diagnosis and Treatment provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of the of the normal functioning of the pituitary and of the diagnosis and treatment of pituitary disorders. Topics range from normal hypothalamic-pituitary interactions and the processes that disrupt them to new developments in pituitary imaging and appropriate surgical intervention in various pituitary disorders. Among the diseases discussed are congenital hypopituitarism, deficiency states, strategies for evaluating patients with hyperprolactinemia, Cushing's syndrome, acromegaly, and glycoprotein pituitary tumors. From bench to bedside, Diseases of the Pituitary: Diagnosis and Treatment offers endocrinologists, neurologists, pathologists, gynecologists, and pediatricians the most up-to-date single reference for understanding the physiology, pathology, and pharmacology of normal pituitary hormones and for treating and diagnosing the various diseases associated with the pituitary
