The last few decades have seen a growth in pediatric endocrinology services across the country. The training in these specialized services has also evolved across different centers in the country, with the availability of a defined curriculum, national and international workshops, and assessment procedures.
The book titled “Pediatric Endocrinology – An examination-oriented simplified textbook,” published as part of Scott’s PEDIA-TRICKS Specialty Series, authored by Hemchand Krishna Prasad and Sunkara Naga Jyothi beautifully captures the essence of pediatric endocrinology. The book covers common endocrine disorders arranged as a total of nine chapters. The learning objectives have been enumerated for each chapter. Each chapter begins with a brief description of physiology or a basic clinical approach. The detailed management protocol, monitoring schedule, and long-term follow-up are then discussed with details of individual conditions. A point-wise mention of different signs and symptoms of diseases provides a ready reckoner for the disease.
The book provides simplified algorithms for diagnosis and management. The text is arranged in a simple format for easy reference. The illustrations and tables are printed in attractive colors ensuring the important points get highlighted. This style provides to be a handy refresher material in a busy clinic or for preparation of examination.
A few issues that are unique for pediatric case management like drug administration in neonates and identification of signs in sick children have also been highlighted.
The book provides a complete snapshot of pediatric endocrine disorders and their management. It will be of great use for pediatric postgraduates and pediatric endocrine trainees. The book is available online through orders at parasredkart.com (discounted price of INR 375).
I wish the authors best wishes for the launch and dissemination of this book.
