Practical Pediatric Endocrinology in a Limited Resource Setting provides a guide for managing pediatric endocrine problems in a limited resource setting, together with an outline of the bases for these disorders. The book outlines a plan for coming to a likely diagnosis in situations where resources are constrained, and suggests ways to access more sophisticated technologies for diagnostic confirmation and extension of available tools.

Further extending and complementing each chapter is a series of scenarios for use as teaching and learning tools. Together with a clinical question, all chapters include a suggested outline for assessment that assists readers facing similar situations in daily practice. Each scenario works through a typical series of deductive steps used to establish a working diagnosis, while considering both a differential diagnosis and reminding readers of current knowledge around the subject matter.

Provides a working knowledge of pediatric endocrinology, from the viewpoint of practical application, for residents and clinicians practicing in settings with scarce material resources
Features clinically based chapters, empahsising workable diagnoses and management plans in limited resource situations

Describes basic research techniques and planning, intended to foster collaboration between colleagues and other centers in clinical or basic research, which can inform clinical practice and drive innovation

This book was conceived as an accessible and useful resource for pediatricians and other health care workers, aiming to provide clear diagnostic outlines and management strategies. Many experienced endocrinologists around the world have contributed to this book, several of whom have travelled and taught widely in the developing world. The resulting book was not intended to take the place of standard texts. It
is intended to provide brief, up to date background information for endocrine conditions with an emphasis on diagnostic possibilities, practical low cost investigations and treatment where indicated. A guide as to how to access more sophisticated technologies where needed, is also provided.
Development of a broader knowledge base in medicine requires an ability to access and interpret medical literature. For this reason we have included a short chapter to serve as an introduction to basic molecular biology, so that the reader may better understand, interpret and assimilate an increasingly vast amount of complex information
