The Thyroid

  • Kenneth A. Woeber
  • Lewis E. Braverman


This chapter will focus on those advances relating to the thyroid that have been reported during 1976 and early 1977 and that have particular impact with respect to human physiology and disease. We elected to retain the organizational format that we employed last year in the hope that over time it will readily permit a longitudinal review of a given general area.
