Completely revised and updated since the publication of the highly-valued first edition in 2003, the Oxford Textbook of Endocrinology and Diabetes (2nd edition) provides an up-to-date, stimulating, and comprehensive account of endocrinology and diabetes. Containing first rate, pragmatic advice on diagnosis, and clear guidelines for recommended management; it also covers the scientific principles that underlie medical practice.
Each of the 254 chapters in the Oxford Textbook of Endocrinology and Diabetes is written by an internationally-acknowledge expert, relates basic science to evidence based guidelines and clinical management, and offers an outline of the controversies in the field. The textbook also contains over 700 illustrations, and numerous tables and boxes to complement the text.
