For general practitioners and pediatricians, and trainees in endocrinology and pediatric endocrinology, Hochberg (Rambam Medical Center, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology) compiles 53 algorithms for use in addressing diagnostic and therapeutic problems seen in children with endocrine disorders. Meant to help diagnosis in a logical, efficient, and cost-effective way, the algorithms classify common clinical symptoms, signs, and laboratory abnormalities and provide step-by-step, logical approaches to decision making. The problems are divided by categories of growth, puberty, intersex, adrenal, water and electrolytes, calcium metabolism, thyroid, and carbohydrates issues. Contributors are medical specialists from the US, Israel, and Europe.
