Summary In recent years, substantial progress in gene technology has greatly improved the understanding of the pathogenesis of paediatric endocrine diseases as well as opened new diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities. This volume, based on a symposium held in Genoa in January 2007, reviews normal and abnormal hypothalamic-pituitary development affecting growth hormone (GH) secretion and defects of the GH-IGF-I axis influencing GH and IGF-I action. Abnormalities of the pituitary-gonadal axis affecting normal puberty are discussed together with defects of steroidogenesis involving both adrenal and go
