Some of the topics covered in the book are the classification of rickets; mechanisms of homeostasis; transepithelial transport of phosphate anion; definition of mendelian rickets; treatment of; classification of androgens and synthetic anabolic agents; and assessment of parathyroid function. The measurement of parathyroid hormone is fully covered. An in-depth account of the indirect assessment of parathyroid activity is provided. The acquired disorders of Vitamin D metabolism are completely presented. A chapter is devoted to the aetiological views of rickets and osteomalacia. Another section focuses on the treatment and prevention of rickets and osteomalacia. The analysis of renal osteodystrophy, hypercalcemia, and familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia are briefly covered.
