Thyroid Disease

New or Used: 16 copies from $105.54
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.
