The Pituitary, Fourth Edition, continues the tradition of a cogent blend of basic science and clinical medicine which has been the successful hallmark of prior editions. This comprehensive text is devoted to the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of pituitary disorders. The new edition has been extensively revised to reflect new knowledge derived from advances in molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, diagnostics, and therapeutics as they apply to the pituitary gland. The wide spectrum of clinical disorders emanating from dysfunction of the master gland is described in detail by experts in the field. Fundamental mechanisms underlying disease pathogenesis are presented to provide the reader with an in-depth understanding of mechanisms subserving both normal and disordered pituitary hormone secretion and action. This extensive body of knowledge is useful for students, trainees, physicians, and scientists who need to understand critical pituitary functions and how to care for patients with pituitary disorders. Chapters provide medical students, clinical and basic endocrinology trainees, endocrinologists, internists, pediatricians, gynecologists, and neurosurgeons with a comprehensive, yet integrated, text devoted to the science and art of pituitary medicine. Brings together pituitary experts from all areas of research and practice who take readers all the way from bench research, to genomic and proteomic analysis, clinical analysis, and new therapeutic approaches to pituitary disorders Saves researchers and clinicians time in quickly accessing the very latest details on a broad range of issues related to normal and diseased pituitary function Provides a common language for endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, OB/GYNs, and endocrine researchers to discuss how the pituitary gland and hormones affect each major organ system

This comprehensive volume focuses on mechanisms leading to pituitary tumor formation and progression. The individual chapters provide timely updates on developments in the rapidly expanding field of pituitary tumor pathogenesis. Researchers from leading centers describe the fundamental functional anatomy of the pituitary, the structure and function of the hypothalamic hormone receptors as they relate to human pituitary adenomas, as well as disordered transcription factors, growth factors and signaling proteins in pituitary tumorigenesis. They also present transgenic models of pituitary tumor formation and report on chromosomal deletions observed in both hereditary and sporadic adenomas. The book is an essential and timely resource for basic and clinical endocrinologists, neurosurgeons and neuro-oncologists as it provides a state-of-the-art summary of our current understanding of the pathogenesis of these common tumors.
