About this book:
The revised, updated Second Edition of this highly acclaimed work provides a comprehensive picture of current thyroid medicine and surgery and presents a unique multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid disease. With contributions from more than 60 leading authorities--more than 20 of them newly selected for this edition--the book integrates the perspectives of the many disciplines that deal with the clinical manifestations of thyroid disorders.The Second Edition features a new section on the molecular biology of the thyroid gland, with chapters on the molecular basis of thyroid disease; the molecular biology of the thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor; thyroid hormone resistance syndromes; and oncogenes and thyroid cancer. Many of the previous edition's chapters have been extensively revised by new contributing authors, including the chapters on thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy, treatment of hyperthyroidism with 131I, and hypothyroidism. The latest advances in thyroid surgery are also described.
