Summary Phosphate in Pediatric Health and Disease provides a state-of-the-art overview of normal physiology, pathophysiology, genetics, clinical and therapeutic aspects of different types of phosphate homeostasis in early life. The book reviews the developmental physiology of phosphate metabolism from the fetus to the adolescent. It describes the pathophysiologic mechanisms associated with perturbations in phosphate homeostasis as well as discusses the different clinical conditions related to abnormal mineral metabolism, parathyroid hormone and vitamin D in infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and the modern diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. This book will benefit pediatricians, endocrinologists, neurologists, nutritionists, and researchers in the field of mineral metabolism
