About this book

Introduction

In this second edition of his popular and widely acclaimed book, Lewis Braverman and a panel of international authorities have thoroughly updated and revised the first edition with fresh perspectives, many new authors, and the latest scientific and clinical developments in thyroid disease. New to this edition are the clinical relevance of the sodium/iodide symporter (NIS), broad coverage of autoimmune thyroid disease, and expanded coverage of thyroid cancer, including recombinant human TSH. Other chapters discuss such important topics as thyroid dysfunction during pregnancy and postpartum, thyroid disease in children and the elderly, the evaluation and management of nodular goiter, the worldwide problem of iodine deficiency and its eradication, and environmental goitrogens.
Authoritative and up-to-date, Diseases of the Thyroid, Second Edition, provides internists, family physicians, obstetricians and gynecologists, and endocrinologists alike with a highly readable guide not only to understanding thyroid disorders, but also to their optimal clinical management.
