DESCRIZIONE

Establishing endocrinology as a distinct medical specialty was no easy task. This engaging volume chronicles the journey through the stories of the men –and occasional women—who shaped the specialty through the ages.
In 108 brief chapters, A Biographical History of Endocrinology illuminates the progress of endocrinology from Hippocrates to the modern day. The author highlights important leaders and their contributions to the field, including these early pioneers:
Kos and Alexandria, and the first human anatomy
Bartolomeo Eustachi and the adrenal gland
Richard Lower and the pituitary gland
Thomas Addison and adrenal insufficiency
Franz Leydig and testosterone secreting cells
Wiliam Stewart Halsted and surgery of the thyroid gland
John J. Abel and isolation of hormones
Hakaru Hashimoto and his disease
Covering all the watershed moments in the history of the profession, the book identifies key figures whose contributions remain relevant today. Their fascinating stories of experiments and studies, advocacy and adversity, and exploring unknown territory will inspire the next generation of endocrinologists and satisfy every clinician who ever wondered "how did we get here?"
