SUMMARY

New and exciting concepts in the fields of adrenal physiology and pathophysiology have been emerging almost exponentially, producing a tremendous influx of new knowledge. In Adrenal Disorders, a panel of distinguished physicians and researchers-many active contributors to the discoveries-select the most relevant new findings and integrate them into the existing body of clinical knowledge on adrenal pathologies. The book includes important reviews of disturbances in cortisol homeostasis, and new concepts regarding adrenal tumors and hereditary adrenal diseases. Also discussed are mineralocorticoids and the syndromes of mineralocortoid excess and aldosterone synthase deficiency. A focused review of the molecular and cellular biology of the adrenal cortices medullae, coupled with a discussion of the secretion and metabolism of adrenal products, provide a sound physiological foundation for understanding the new approaches to adrenal disease. Authoritative and insightful, Adrenal Disorders provides physicians and scientists with a comprehensive, state-of-the-art practical guide to the devastating diseases of the adrenals that are so often difficult to diagnose and treat
