Completely revised and updated since publication of the highly-valued first edition in 2002, the Oxford Textbook of Endocrinology and Diabetes second edition provides an up-to-date, stimulating and comprehensive account of endocrinology and diabetes. Containing first rate, pragmatic advice on diagnosis and clear guidelines for recommended management, it also covers the scientific principles that underlie medical practice. Now available in paperback, this two volume pack presents 254 chapters, organised into 13 sections for easy-access to the relevant information. Each chapter is written by an internationally-acknowledged expert, relates basic science to evidence based guidelines and clinical management, and where appropriate offers an outline of the controversies in the field. The textbook has an international focus, and where possible deals with medical practice in countries without advanced medical resources.

Review from a previous edition: The work of Wass and Stewart should be in every medical library and I recommend that every endocrinologists gets a copy. * Journal of the German Society for Endocrinology *
Review from a previous edition: For someone who is fond of Endocrinology was a pleasure to open this book. It is a classic textbook in endocrinology and diabetes, as well as being contemporary in language, content and illustrations. I recommend the book to anyone who needs a large and updated textbook of endocrinology and diabetes. * Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association *
