Similarly, information on clinical fluorosis and related metabolic bone disease could have also been included as a chapter.
Sections VII and VIII deal with cancer, and sclerosing and dysplastic bone diseases where modern genetic information for these disorders has been detailed. Section IX is on renal stone and its pathogenesis.

Though all essential aspects have been covered, information on proximal and distal tubular disorders and their treatment would have added to the complete understanding of renal stones. Section X, on oral and maxillofacial biology and pathology is a new addition and contextual for clinicians in view of the importance of bone mineral homoeostasis in oral health.
It is difficult to find this information in other textbooks of endocrinology. Similarly, section XI on interaction of bone disorders in perspective of abnormalities of other disorders such as obesity, diabetes and immune system provides information which is difficult to find in other books. Lack of information on research methods related to metabolic bone diseases is a major limitation of the book. A chapter on osteoblast cultures, stem cells for bone regeneration, assays for advanced investigations such as calcium sensing receptor and role of next generation sequencing for diagnosis of rare bone mineral disorders would have attracted the attention of basic bone biologists and physician scientists.
Overall, this book is appropriate for postgraduate students to understand various metabolic bone disorders. National Center for Biotechnology Information , U. Indian J Med Res.
