Summary Comprised exclusively of clinical cases covering the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid cancer and related clinical issues, this concise, practical casebook will provide clinicians in endocrinology and oncology with the best real-world strategies to properly manage the various forms of thyroid cancer that they may encounter. Each chapter is a case report, written by recognized experts, that opens with a unique clinical presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and therapy, as well as the case outcome, literature review, clinical pearls and pitfalls, and bibliography. All recommendations are based on evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and recent literature. Cases included illustrate treatment for both low and high risk differentiated thyroid cancer, including surgical approaches, radioiodine therapy, and novel chemotherapies and targeted therapies, as well as postoperative follow-up and special issues. Additional cases demonstrate the management of medullary thyroid cancer, thyroid lymphoma and anaplastic thyroid cancer. Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Thyroid Cancer: A Case-Based Approach will be an excellent resource for clinical endocrinologists and oncologists, endocrine fellows, residents and students alike
