Emanuel Brams, MD, draws on his extensive clinical experience in endocrinology to present a concise and practical approach to identifying and treating patients with thyroid disease. Using patient histories, physical examinations, and test results of representative cases derived from his busy practice, Dr. Brams poses and answers a series of questions similar to those that any good clinician asks. What are the test results? What would you do next? What is your diagnosis? How would you treat this patient? What can we learn from this case? The resulting dialog is informative and illuminating and allows the reader to take part in both diagnostic and treatment decisions. The cases cover the common thyroid disorders, ranging from Graves' disease to thyroid cancer. Thyroid Disease: A Case-Based and Practical Guide for Primary Care offers primary care clinicians, pediatricians, and gynecologists an optimal approach to diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of thyroid disease, emphasizing the practical and common issues that physicians see in their offices every day.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:" excellent book on an important topic written for primary care physicians in a style that makes for enjoyable reading that is easily translated into useful lessons for patient care." -Neil S. Skolnik, MD, Temple University School of Medicine"Thyroid Disease . is a slim text that uses a case-based approach to illustrate the diagnosis and treatment of common thyroid disorders. ... This case-based approach results in a very readable and understandable textbook that reads like a conversation with a colleague or consultant. . For the novice, the case-based approach provides a highly accessible introduction to thyroid disease. Similarly, this text is a useful reference for the general practitioner . . Its strengths lie in its easy readability and size." (Christine G. Gourin, Head & Neck, Vol. 29, February, 2007) " interesting book, which takes the primary care physician on a memorable tour through a wide spectrum of thyroid disorders.  The discussion is well-reasoned and should furnish practical help to a busy primary care practitioner." -TRENDS in Endocrinology and Metabolism
