Joll's Diseases of the Thyroid Gland, Second Edition provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of thyroid diseases. This book discusses the physiology structure, and development of the thyroid gland.
Organized into 29 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the function of the thyroid gland to trap and concentrate iodine, harness it in organic combination, and then to secrete it into the blood. This text then discusses the evolutionary scheme showing the development of thyroid gland as a special organ for the control of iodine metabolism. Other chapters consider the various types of thyroid diseases, including simple goiter, acute inflammations, Grave's disease, and granulomatous diseases of the thyroid.
