This volume, prepared by an authoritative team of internationally renowned contributors, looks in depth at the growth of the fetus and neonate. The volume is introduced with an overview of the physiology and endocrinology of normal growth, before looking in depth at the pathophysiology and clinical applications. Several chapters focus on fetal growth retardation and the challenges this condition poses for the clinician. The measurement and assessment of fetal growth and well being are also fully addressed. Another important theme is the programming of adult diseases early in the development of the fetus. In summary, this is a stimulating account of an important area of scientific and clinical development.
