About this book

Introduction

The interactions between the thyroid gland and the skin are of profound clinical importance in health and disease. Given the prevalence of thyroid disease worldwide, it is imperative that primary care physicians, endocrinologists, and dermatologists appreciate the scope of these associations so that thyroid disease may be diagnosed and treated expediently.

Thyroid Disorders with Cutaneous Manifestations is a single authoritative resource enabling physicians to comprehend the basic science, laboratory evaluation, epidemiology, and clinical aspects of thyroid diseases and their cutaneous manifestations. Specific disorders such as the thyroglossal duct cyst and cutaneous metastases, nonspecific features of the skin and its appendages seen in hyper- and hypothyroidism, and the multiple associations with other dermatologic and systemic diseases are all surveyed, while individual chapters are devoted to various syndromal diseases, such as alopecia in thyroid disease, thyroid dermopathy (pretibial myxedema) and the relationship of autoimmune thyroid disease to chronic idiopathic urticaria and angioedema.

Internationally recognized experts have contributed to this comprehensive text, with an unique "editorial perspective" written for each chapter by the Editor which offers a coherent thread to this book’s narrative so that the scope, complexity, and relevance of this text is further understood and appreciated.
