New Insights in Noonan Syndrome provides an in-depth analysis of this disorder for pediatric endocrinologists as well as primary care providers to provide affected patients with an updated model of care and appropriate treatment. This resource examines in detail the recent advances in understanding and treating short stature in in Noonan Syndrome, as well as the latest progress in growth hormone-dependent signaling pathways involved in short stature, one of the most frequent clinical manifestations.

Clotting and platelet defects considerably restrict the possible analgesic and anesthetic options in patients with Noonan syndrome. This is a must have reference for pediatric endocrinologists and practicing physicians.
