Thyroid and Parathyroid Disorders in Children: A Practical Handbook 1st Edition
Description of Thyroid and Parathyroid Disorders in Children
Thyroid and Parathyroid Disorders in Children: A Practical Handbook offers a focused and practical approach to diagnostic and therapeutic (both medical and surgical) interventions in management of thyroid and parathyroid diseases in children. It is divided into two sections: thyroid and parathyroid, with each section discussing the use of the laboratory testing and radiographic modalities in the study of these glands. This guides the reader to know the utility and limitations of the findings when approaching a child with these conditions. Written by international experts in the fields of pediatric endocrinology and endocrine surgery, it is ideal for trainees, practicing physicians and professionals who care for children with endocrine conditions.
- Discusses differences in recognition and management of thyroid and parathyroid disorders in children compared with adults, with both common and rare disorders described along with their medical and surgical treatment techniques.
- Aids the practicing physicians, endocrinologists, trainees, and fellows in understanding the complex concepts in a practical way.
- Fills the gap in the market for a much-needed book concentrated on endocrine neck diseases of childhood.
