This book presents a comprehensive overview of pediatric thyroid diseases and thus provides a useful tool for clinical problem solving. Opinion leaders in the field present reviews on all relevant diseases of the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis. Sixteen chapters cover topics ranging from fetal thyroidology, congenital hypothyroidism, central hypothyroidism, inherited defects of thyroid hormone action, cell transport and metabolism to iodine deficiency, autoimmune thyroid disease and thyroid tumors. Written by clinicians, the chapters provide in-depth information and current guidelines for clinical problems encountered in pediatric thyroidology. As a unique feature, a case seminar collection for each chapter presents typical patient histories providing key learning points and key references for clinical problem solving in family medicine, pediatric endocrinology and medical genetics. Providing a succinct update on clinical pediatric thyroidology, this book is an essential tool for pediatric and adult endocrinologists, as well as for general practitioners, pediatricians and medical geneticists.

"Frontiers In Thyroidology" assembles the prize lectures, symposia, and papers presented during the Ninth International Thyroid Congress in Sao Paulo, Brazil in September, 1985. This book represents the State-of the-Art in thyroid studies with its continuous expansion into the areas of immunology, molecular biology, clinical and environmental medicine. As its name also indicates, the material compiled in this volume defines important questions to be answered in basic and applied aspects of the thyroid. So, this book clearly demonstrates the rewards, excitement, and challenges posed by the thyroid gland. Once again, the thyroid gland, through its unique and important functions and implications in health and disease, has been able to congregate scientists throughout the world to communicate their findings, to share their expertise and experiences, and to strengthen their bonds of friendship and commitment to make a better world through their work. This publication consists of 309 papers in 19 different topics. The prize lectures and symposia review and update our knowledge in basic and clinical aspects of exceptional interest in the thyroid field. "Frontiers in Thyroidology" adds to a series of publications from previous interna tional thyroid meetings which includes: "Advances in Thyroid Research", London, 1960; "Current Topics in Thyroid Research", Rome, 1965; "Further Advances in Thyroid Research", Vienna, 1970; "Thyroid Research", Boston, 1975, and "Thyroid Research VIII", Sydney, 1980. We would like to express our gratitude to Mrs. P. Langford and Drs.
