- First textbook to be devoted entirely to hypoparathyroidism
- Provides essential, up-to-date information on the pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of hypoparathyroidism Covers a wide range of hypoparathyroid disorders Discusses novel replacement therapy with PTH 1-34 and 1-84 Includes a chapter on surgical hypoparathyroidism
This book provides essential, up-to-date information on the pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of hypoparathyroidism. It is exceptional in being devoted entirely to the condition and has been written at a key time as it coincides with the long-awaited arrival of replacement therapy based on parathyroid hormone (PTH) – an advance that is sparking renewed interest in hypoparathyroidism. The book opens by examining the anatomy and physiology of the parathyroids before describing the epidemiology and clinical presentation of hypoparathyroidism. The full range of hypoparathyroid disorders are then discussed, including various genetic forms, postoperative hypoparathyroidism, other forms of acquired hypoparathyroidism, and pseudohypoparathyroidism. Both conventional treatment and the novel replacement therapy with PTH 1-34 and 1-84 are fully addressed. This book will be of interest to all endocrinologists, and also to surgeons and internal medicine physicians.
