“The Art of Neuroendocrinology: A case-based approach to medical decision-making” is not your standard textbook of pituitary endocrinology. This comprehensive collection of works presents unique and interesting, often challenging, real patient cases that illustrate the complexities of medical decision-making, incorporating evidence-based medicine and the practice of medicine, in the evaluation and management of patients with various pituitary disorders. Experts in the field present their illustrative case studies, a related state-of-the-art review of the literature on one or more relevant topics, discuss the diagnostic and/or therapeutic dilemmas, and share their thought processes to reflect their medical decision-making, and review the outcomes of the decisions in their patients. The purpose of this textbook is to bring together the art of the practice of neuroendocrinology, evidence-based medicine, pertinent clinical guidelines, and everyday problem-solving skills that we employ in the surgical and non-surgical evaluation and management of patients.
The Art of Neuroendocrinology will be available shortly. An announcement from the publisher will be forthcoming on Pituitary World News with the appropriate links to purchase and download.
