In this atlas, of comprehensive scope, Drs. Lisser and Escamilla have brought together an impressive selection of high-quality photographs illustrating the various stages and manifestations of the endocrinopathies.
Matters relative to diagnosis and therapy are dealt with in the abbreviated text accompanying the graphic material. While the brevity of the written text adds to the value of this book as a reference source, it also occasionally leads to an unfortunate bias. Particularly with respect to therapeutic measures, the authors frequently propose measures which, while acceptable, are not necessarily preferred in all quarters.
In a field fraught with diagnostic difficulties, the authors, by stressing the pictorial aspects of the endocrinopathies, have made a significant contribution to the better recognition of the endocrine disorders. Their book should prove valuable to all engaged in the bedside practice of medicine.
