The spectrum of the cutaneous manifestations of thyroid disease includes cutaneous metastases from thyroid malignancies and thryoglossal duct cysts, nonspecific alterations of the skin, hair, and nails reflecting both the hyperthyroid and hypothyroid states, and the multiple associations of thyroid disease with other cutaneous and systemic diseases. Internists, family practitioners, pediatricians, geriatricians, and dermatologists address these issues on a daily basis: When is it appropriate to evaluate a patient for thyroid disease?

Produktbeschreibung
The spectrum of the cutaneous manifestations of thyroid disease includes cutaneous metastases from thyroid malignancies and thryoglossal duct cysts, nonspecific alterations of the skin, hair, and nails reflecting both the hyperthyroid and hypothyroid states, and the multiple associations of thyroid disease with other cutaneous and systemic diseases. Internists, family practitioners, pediatricians, geriatricians, and dermatologists address these issues on a daily basis: When is it appropriate to evaluate a patient for thyroid disease? How should the patients be evaluated? How often should testing be performed? Should other family members be screened for thyroid disease? The purpose of The Thyroid in Dermatology is to raise awareness of the vast spectrum of thyroid-skin interactions, and to provide a framework for the appropriate diagnosis and management of these diseases.
Jacques Barzun, the noted Columbia University historian of ideas and culture, once described the feeling that some people experience when they come upon a new reference book. He wrote: "Hand over to one of us a new Dictionary, "Companion," or Guide, and our eyes first light up and then turn dreamy: we have seized the volume and are off, arm in arm with the guide i or companion. ..." The book now in your hands made my eyes light up. Thyroid Disorders with Cutaneous Manifestations is that kind of book. Heymann, who has been fascinated by this sometimes controversial subject for decades, has brought not only his own expertise, but that of many experts from the fields of the skin and the thyroid gland. Steven Jay Gould wrote about overlapping and nonoverlapping magisteria-this book demonstrates just how much important overlap there is. But it also covers the basics in such a way that dermatologists can find what they need to know about the thyroid and thyroidologists can find what they need to know about the skin. Thyroid Disorders with Cutaneous Manifestations falls neatly into the tra- tion of medical monographs that become standards. They fulfill the roles of gathering, digesting, and synthesizing current knowledge, and they do so in a way that review articles cannot approach and that the scientific literature is not designed to accomplish.

Rezensionen
Aus den Rezensionen:

"Gelegentlich landet ein Buch auf meinen Herausgeber-Tisch, bei dem ich nicht widerstehen kann, es zu reviewen. Dies war der Fall mit diesem großartigen Buch ... Die Diskussionen sind übersichtlich, mit guten Referenzen versehen und begleitet von hilfreichen Kommentaren von Dr. Heymann. Das letzte Drittel des Buches wird vermutlich von höchstem Interesse für Kliniker sein. ... Schilddrüsenerkrankungen und die Haut haben Generationen von Dermatologen fasziniert, und nun ist das Thema schließlich zwischen zwei Buchdeckeln gefangen in einer sehr sachkundigen Art und Weise." (Walter Burgdorf in: JDDG - Journal der Deutschen Dermatologischen Gesellschaft Journal of the German Society of Dermatology, 2009, Vol. 7, Issue 3, S. 275)
