In Diseases of the Thyroid, Lewis E. Braverman's timely new volume in the Contemporary Endocrinology series, internationally recognized clinicians and scientists critically and comprehensively review the major clinical issues in thyroid disease, as well as the basic molecular biology and physiology of thyroid hormone action. Topics range from neonatal thyroid screening, thyroid dysfunction during infancy and childhood, peripartum thyroid disorders, and thyroid disease in the elderly to the pathogenesis and treatment of nodular goiter, thyroid cancer, thyrotoxicosis, and hypothyroidism. Coverage includes major etiological, clinical, diagnostic, management, and epidemiological issues in thyroid disease.

Authoritative and up-to-date, Diseases of the Thyroid offers clinical endocrinologists and primary care physicians a fresh understanding of the widest variety of thyroid disorders from birth to old age, along with optimal current approaches to their therapy and management.
