520 |a This book is a comprehensive guide to the assessment and management of adults with thyroid disorders in daily clinical practice. All important aspects and disorders are considered. Relevant information on basic anatomy, embryology, immunology, and physiology is included to provide a better basis for understanding the development of disease and its diagnosis and treatment. Careful attention is given to the important but easily overlooked role of iodine in physiology and thyroid diseases. Currently available biochemical tests and other specific diagnostic tools are also considered in detail. The various common thyroid disorders are then discussed in a series of individual chapters that focus on etiology, pathophysiology, symptomatology, diagnosis, and treatment. Numerous high-quality illustrations and concise fact boxes are included. The authors are all experts with wide experience in three disciplines and a long-standing interest in thyroid disease. The book’s unique “hands-on” perspective will make it invaluable for all professionals who deal with thyroid patients
