Summary The style of the book is to be similar to others in the series. A broad (yet concise) coverage of the field of Endocrine Surgery is presented, suitable for residents, specialist registrars in training and for surgeons looking for an up to date synopsis of Endocrine Surgery. The book is aimed at filling the gap between short Vademecum synopses and main reference textbooks of Endocrine Surgery. Each chapter has summary sections; self assessment questions in line with the series. The Thyroid, Parathyroid, Adrenal and Pancreas are covered under the broad headings of Investigation, Benign and malignant conditions and Surgery, with an emphasis on the practical management of patients. The book will be a valuable tool for those revising for board examinations and Fellowship examinations. The text is compiled by expert authors from the USA, Europe and Asia, providing an international perspective on the basic knowledge and clinical management required for the optimal care of patients
