Abstract

This chapter deals with disorders of the endocrine system and metabolism. Starting with symptoms and investigations common to endocrine diseases, this chapter then deals with individual entities. These include hyperparathyroidism, secondary hyperparathyroidism, hypoparathyroidism, pseudohypoparathyroidism, thyrotoxicosis, myxoedema, diabetes insipidus, acromegaly, Cushing's syndrome (adrenocortical excess), Addison's disease (adrenal insufficiency), diabetes mellitus and disorders of calcium metabolism. Each disease entity starts with the definition or description followed by its causes, symptoms, signs, the investigations employed and principles of management. Where relevant, the oral and dental aspects of endocrine and metabolic diseases are also described.
