Aus den Rezensionen: “Ein Buch wie eine Praline zu genießen. ... Im Buch werden die Themen systematisch nach den großen Endokrinopathie-Komplexen und den wichtigsten Hormonen dargestellt. Bekannten Hautbildern wie die Haut bei Morbus Cushing, Addision ... widmet sich das Buch mit gleicher Aufmerksamkeit wie diesen seltenen Krankheiten. ... Bis man in einer zweiten voluminöseren Auflage Forschung und Therapie integrieren wird haben wir Zeit genug, das Praline-Buch ... bei Reisen mitzunehmen, die klinischen und histologischen Bilder zu bewundern, immer ... etwas Neues zu entdecken und dabei viel zu lernen ...“ (Christos C Zouboulis, in: JDDG Journal der Deutschen Dermatologischen Gesellschaft, 2010, Vol.8, Issue 2, S. 139)
