Adrenal disease in children poses an immensely difficult diagnostic and management problem for the paediatrician in view of the large number of rare pathologies that may present in this way.

A 10 year old boy has had type 1 diabetes for two years, with reasonable control. Over a few weeks he develops hypoglycaemic episodes, worse in the mornings, with vomiting. His insulin requirements are reduced, with no improvement.

Adrenal disease in children poses an immensely difficult diagnostic and management problem for the paediatrician in view of the large number of rare pathologies that may present in this wa. The major contributions of modern biochemistry and molecular genetics in our current understanding are visible throughout, providing a unique overview of adrenocortical biology. This book is of great interest to general pediatricians, paediatric endocrinologists, adult endocrinologists, clinical geneticists and basic scientists working in areas such as developmental biology and molecular steroidogenesis.

Hyperthyroidism is rare in early childhood and most commonly caused by Graves' disease. The clinical studies and data are relatively limited due to the low prevalence of the disease in all over the world as well as in Turkey. We report 14 children (4 boys, 10 girls) aged . -7. 5 yr. At diagnosis, all patients had weight loss, hyperkinetic activity, tachycardia, difficulty sleeping, and poor concentration and 11 presented with proptosis. Here we report two preschool-age cases with Graves' hyperthyroidism to bring the subject to general pediatricians' attention and discuss the management of those children.

This was a prospective observational clinical and laboratory study, including 30 patients with septic shock, eight patients with multiple trauma, and 40 age- and sex-matched control patients. Molecular genetic aspects and pathophysiology of endocrine hypertension.

The Task Force included a chair, selected by The Clinical Guidelines Subcommittee of the Endocrine Society, eight additional clinicians experienced with the disease, a methodologist, and a medical writer. The co-sponsoring associations (European Society of Endocrinology and the American Association for Clinical Chemistry) had participating members.

Adrenal disease in children poses an immensely difficult diagnostic and management problem for the paediatrician in view of the large number of rare pathologies that may present in this way. This volume brings together the expertise of the acknowledged leaders in specific adrenal disorders to provide a readily accessible text that combines a detailed description of the molecular origins of these diseases, as they are currently understood, with a unique account of the clinical features and therapeutic options. Beginning with disorders that primarily affect adrenal development and progressing towards the defects that interfere with steroid production, the reader gains considerable insight into the normal physiology of the adrenal cortex particularly as revealed by clinical disorders. The major contributions of modern biochemistry and molecular genetics in our current understanding are visible throughout, providing a unique overview of adrenocortical biology. This book is of great interest to general pediatricians, paediatric endocrinologists, adult endocrinologists, clinical geneticists and basic scientists working in areas such as developmental biology and molecular steroidogenesis.
