The interactions between the thyroid gland and the skin are of profound clinical importance in health and disease. Given the prevalence of thyroid disease worldwide, it is imperative that primary care physicians, endocrinologists, and dermatologists appreciate the scope of these associations so that thyroid disease may be diagnosed and treated expediently.Thyroid Disorders with Cutaneous Manifestations is a single authoritative resource enabling physicians to comprehend the basic science, laboratory evaluation, epidemiology, and clinical aspects of thyroid diseases and their cutaneous manifestations.
