About this book

Comprised exclusively of clinical cases of patients with hypoparathyroidism, this concise, practical casebook will provide clinicians with the best real-world strategies to properly diagnose and treat the various forms of the disorder they may encounter. It presents a detailed cross-section of patients across all age groups, with different etiologies of the disease and possible complications, to present sensible management scenarios to physicians treating patients with hypoparathyroidism. The cases presented include the management of acute and chronic hypocalcemia following neck surgery, as well as autoimmune, syndromic, idiopathic, and autosomal dominant etiologies. Conventional management with calcium and active vitamin D as well as parathyroid hormone therapy are discussed. In addition, cases are presented highlighting the chronic manifestations of the disease, including complications involving the renal, neurologic, and skeletal systems, as well as cataracts and quality of life.

Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Hypoparathyroidism: A Clinical Casebook will be an excellent resource for endocrinologists and other clinicians caring for patients with this disease.
