Massry (Editor) was the first to systematize the importance of excess PTH in chronic renal failure. In addition to these areas, Calcium in Internal Medicine covers basic physiology, pathophysiology, nutritional requirements and the role of calcium in the development and treatment of other various diseases. The importance of calcium and its regulatory systems is brought together in one publication providing a useful reference tool for internists, rheumatologists and endocrinologists.
