Neuroendocrinology is an important area in the field of clinical endocrinology and hardly any publication is available addressing it as a targeted entity. This document is a testimony to the newer development and gives an insight in the field of neuroendocrinology. The development of hypothalamo-neurohypophyseal system (HNS), data extrapolated from rat genome, evolution of sexual identity and sexual orientation and newer concepts in onset of puberty including role of kisspeptin provide an enormous insight in these areas. Role of GH and IGF-1 axis in neurogenesis, metabolic action of ghrelin and role of resistin in weight homeostasis are newer worthy areas and may help in understanding the global epidemic of obesity. Genetic inputs in pathogenesis of pituitary tumours, childhood corticotropinomas and prolactinomas, though uncommon are well written and give a comprehensive overview. Overall, this volume is a treasure for those who are interested in paediatric endocrinology.
