The book is an exploration of the biology and pathophysiology of cortisol, a crucial hormone for survival, from the perspective of a multidisciplinary team of international experts. From presenting the current state of knowledge in the field of hormone physiology to discussing aspects related to cortisol measurement methods, the book raises a series of challenges for both endocrinologists and physicians from other specialties.
