Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you on behalf of Children to submit your research, reviews, clinical practice guidelines, case reports, and other article types in this Special Issue entitled “New Research Progress on Endocrine Disorders in Infants, Children, and Adolescents”. 

In the current Special Issue, we will focus on advancements made in the field of pediatric endocrinology, an exciting and constantly evolving field of study. In fact, we are confident that only through a constant collaboration among experts in this clinic area can progress be made in sectors such as disorders involving growth, pubertal development, sexual differentiation and development, thyroid and adrenal, pituitary tumors, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin D and bone metabolism, obesity, metabolic syndrome and others.

Our aim is to disseminate new basic and clinical knowledge useful for both specialists and pediatricians and we would especially like to give space to new original cases and modern approaches in patient diagnostic, management or innovative therapies
