Thyroid Disorders

Thyroid Disorders

by Michael Lazarus, MD

Thyroid disorders can be broadly defined as all maladies that affect the thyroid gland. These include hyper- and hypo-functionality of the gland (hyper- and hypothyroidism) and neoplasia of the thyroid parenchyma (e.g., thyroid cancer). Thyroid disorders are a common sight in outpatient care, more prominently in women.

In this course, the student will be given an overview of the most common thyroid disorders, including the etiologies of hyper- and hypothyroidism and thyroid neoplasia.

For optimal comprehension, the student is required to have preliminary knowledge of thyroid histology, physiology, and pathology.

This lecture is very clear and simple. It is informative and well structured and the lecturer articulates well and is not boring at all. It is good because it highlights all the important facts to remember about thyroid cancer without going into too much details.

good case

really good case. I found this very helpful. I was thinking about pituitary problems so this seems a good learning case.
