Comprised exclusively of clinical cases involving hyperparathyroidism, this concise, practical casebook will provide clinicians in endocrinology with the best real-world strategies to properly diagnose and treat the various forms of the condition they may encounter. Each chapter is a case that opens with a unique clinical presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and management techniques used to treat it, as well as the case outcome and clinical pearls and pitfalls. Cases included illustrate primary, secondary and tertiary forms of hyperparathyroidism, as well as HPT as a comorbid or co-existing condition and as a result of treatment of other conditions. Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Hyperparathyroidism: A Clinical Casebook will be an excellent resource for endocrinologists and family medicine physicians alike.
