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. Specific disorders such as the thyroglossal duct cyst and cutaneous metastases, nonspecific features of the skin and its appendages seen in hyper- and hypothyroidism, and the multiple associations with other dermatologic and systemic diseases are all surveyed, while individual chapters are devoted to various syndromal diseases, such as alopecia in thyroid disease, thyroid dermopathy (pretibial myxedema) and the relationship of autoimmune thyroid disease to chronic idiopathic urticaria and angioedema.Table of contents Embryology and Anatomy of the Thyroid Gland.- Hormones.- Classification and Epidemiology of Thyroid Disorders.- Laboratory Diagnosis of Thyroid Disease.- Thyroglossal Duct Cysts.- Thyroid Cancer and the Skin.- Chromosomes, Genes, and the Thyroid Gland.- Cutaneous Manifestations of Hyperthyroidism.- Cutaneous Manifestations of Hypothyroidism.- Pretibial Myxedema (Thyroid Dermopathy).- Alopecia and Thyroid Disease.- Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria and Thyroid Disease.- Dermatologic Disorders Associated with Thyroid Disease.- Potential Therapeutic Uses of Thyroid Hormone.
