About this title


This book focuses on precocious puberty, providing a unique continuum of expertise looking at puberty from anthropologic, epidemiologic, clinical, and molecular perspectives. The volume addresses broad pubertal changes in the general population while at the same time providing in depth information about specific disorders of puberty and the latest management changes. In particular, the book is intended for endocrinologists and internists.


From the reviews:

"...succeeds in presenting a wide range of topics involved in the onset of puberty from many different perspectives." -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score: 88 - 3 Stars

"When Puberty Is Precocious cogently presents both facts and speculations about whether children today are entering puberty earlier than children did in the past. ...The authors include many experts in clinical research and basic science. ... the book reads well and is organized in a way that makes it a valuable reference tool, and the references cited in the chapters are extensive. When Puberty Is Precocious will be appreciated by primary care physicians as well as pediatric endocrinologists." (Karen O. Klein, The New England Journal of Medicine, December, 2007)

"This monograph belongs to well known Contemporary Endocrinology Series ... . It appears useful not only for all pediatricians, especially for those specialized in pediatric endocrinology or pediatric gynecology, but also for gynecologists, psychologists and possibly also for pedagogists dealing with the education of adolescents. However, considerable number of information could be find in this monograph also by physiologists, pathophysiologists and general endocrinologists. ... excellent editorial work which considerably helps to the reader to percept and understand individual problems discussed by the authors." (Endocrine Regulations, February, 2008)
