Abstract
This practical resource provides the latest evidence, management strategies and recommendations for the treatment of disorders of the adrenal glands, including related physiology, genetics and pharmacology. This book is divided into three thematic sections. The first covers adrenal physiology, presenting adrenal zonation and development, the regulation of steroidogenesis, and the pharmacology of glucocortisoids. Part two discusses the genetics and pathophysiology of a number of adrenal disorders, including autoimmune Addison's disease, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, primary aldosteronism, adrenocortical tumors and hyperplasias, and pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas. The final section presents the latest diagnostic and management strategies for these disorders, addressing adrenal insufficiency, adrenal Cushing's Syndrome and aldosteronism, among others. Over the past twenty years, our understanding of disorders of the adrenal glands has been altered and deepened. Providing a much-needed update to the literature, Adrenal Disorders: Physiology, Pathophysiology and Treatment will be an important resource for both academic and clinical endocrinologists working with the adrenal glands and managing patients with adrenal disorders.

Abstract
Androgen Deficiency and Testosterone Replacement: Current Controversies and Strategies explores the difficulties around the diagnosis and treatment of androgen deficiency. The text examines the available evidence concerning the diagnosis and treatment of men with low testosterone. It also examines controversies in the identification and management of these men. While the information contained within will be of use to those who specialize in androgen deficiency and sexual medicine, the scope of the book will serve as a source of basic information about testosterone replacement and as a source of reasoned analysis of the controversies surrounding testosterone replacement in the aging male. Physicians and physician extenders will be able to apply evidence management principles to the evaluation and treatment of men with testosterone deficiency; supported by the most recent practice guidelines available. The authors represent a select group of physicians with expertise in androgen deficiency and replacement. Androgen Deficiency and Testosterone Replacement: Current Controversies and Strategies will be of great value to all physicians and physician extenders who deliver health care to men of all ages.

Abstract
This book provides a visual demonstration of normal and ectopic locations of parathyroid adenomas using different modalities in patients with PHPT and to describe parathyroid gland–related pathology. It includes several modern imaging modalities for localization of parathyroid glands and parathyroid adenomas, such as Sestamibi scan, SPECT/CT Sestamibi scan, neck ultrasound, MRI, thin-cut CT, and 4D CT scans. Written by experts in the field, chapters include pathology images corresponding to radiology imaging for some presented cases (gross and high-power view). Authors have also collected radiological images of difficult-to-localize parathyroid adenomas in ectopic (abnormal) locations. The atlas is organized by location of the adenomas in upper and lower eutopic locations followed by ectopic locations. Each case demonstrates dual or triple modalities such as US, Sestamibi scan, or SPECT/CT Sestamibi scan, thin-cut CT scan, or 4D CT performed on the same patient. A chapter on parathyroid pathology is also included to help the reader understand challenges in pathological interpretation. Atlas of Parathyroid Imaging and Pathology serves as a valuable reference for radiologists, endocrine surgeons, head and neck surgeons, ENT surgeons, surgical oncologists, endocrinologists, pathologists, nephrologists, students, and all physicians and allayed health practitioners involved in the treatment of patients with primary, secondary, and tertiary hyperparathyroidism.

Abstract
In the era of molecular biology, an atlas that allows a rapid understanding of the complexity of ovarian processes is urgently needed. In this book, the author draws upon her own research, conducted over the past three decades, to provide a unique compilation of high-quality illustrations that offer illuminating insights in a readily accessible form. The ovarian follicles, the corpus luteum, and the interstitial cortex are presented as precisely controlled homeostatic compartments. Physiologic cell death forms and leukocyte subtypes are clearly depicted, and the various steps in the ovulatory process are demonstrated in detail. Further topics addressed include the microvascular bed, the plasticity of intraovarian nerves as part of the remodelling processes in the polycystic and the menopausal ovary, and the role of cytokeratin-positive cells (of steroidogenic or microvascular origin) as messengers of innate immunity. This atlas will be a fascinating and informative resource for both trainees and more experienced professionals.
Contents
Introduction -- Follicle stages and follicular atresia without and with irradiation -- Follicular atresia as proliferative and inflammatory event -- Cortex and cellular stromolysis -- The ovulatory period as acute inflammatory response to oxidative stress and follicle cell harvest -- Corpus luteum cycle with focus on capillary sprouting and regression, eosinophils and KIT-positive cells -- Intraovarian oocyte release (IOR) with severe tissue damage -- Vascular stromolysis and vascular luteolysis for bulk tissue removal -- Polycystic and postmenopausal ovaries and negligible mast cells -- Cytokeratin-positive cells as dendritic-like cells and potential albumin-coexpression in follicles and corpus luteum -- Aspects of immunological control, novel concepts, challenges and clinical perspectives.

Abstract
This book reviews normal thymic structure and covers the histomorphology of benign and malignant tumors and rare lesions of the thymus, with detailed descriptions of over 300 full color photomicrographs accompanied by relevant clinical and radiology photographs and anatomical drawings. It includes chapters on the surgical pathology and cytology of thymic lesions (which is rarely described in the available literature), and all grades and stages of the most common thymic lesions. Written and edited by leading experts on pathology, the book highlights the expanded role of pathologists in patient care for thymic lesions. It will help students to understand thymic cytology and surgical pathology in detail and enable them to answer questions on thymic surgical resections and cytology cases in their pathology post-graduation examination. In addition, the book offers a comprehensive, richly illustrated guide to thymic pathology for clinicians, practicing pathologists, post-graduate residents and students alike.

Abstract
This book highlights the increase in thyroid tumors and NET and demonstrates the growing importance of circulating markers in diagnosis as well as treatment and follow-up. Dramatic technical improvements have heightened the clinical impact of well-established, conventional biochemical markers. In addition, more recent genetic and molecular approaches have provided innovative molecular markers. In this context, effective communication between clinicians and laboratory physicians/scientists is essential in allowing all those involved to fully profit from these exciting advances. In this comprehensive, up-to-date book, authors from different laboratory and clinical areas link laboratory and clinical topics. Analytical problems such as interferences, false-negative and false-positive results are discussed in depth, and flow-charts offer insights into identifying and avoiding them. Illustrated clinical cases detail the clinical role and limitations of different tumor markers. Lastly, it explores health technology assessment and economic issues. This is a valuable resource for endocrinologists, oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, scientists and technologists who want to keep abreast of the latest developments.
