This book is a practical, evidence-based resource covering thyroid disease and its effects on reproduction and fertility, discussing thyroid function and dysfunction – hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, thyroid nodules and cancer – during pregnancy as well as its effects on the fetus. It begins with a review of the anatomy and function of the thyroid and the biosynthesis and physiology of thyroid hormones, as well as the pathophysiology of thyroid dysfunction. The chapters that follow discuss thyroid function and dysfunction (e.g., hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism) during pregnancy and its effects on fertility as well as the developing fetus. The management of thyroid nodules and cancer, the role of thyroid dysfunction in infertility, the role of thyroid autoimmunity and miscarriage, and postpartum thyroiditis are presented in detail in the concluding chapters. Clinical cases and outcomes bookend each chapter, demonstrating current management strategies for a well-rounded presentation.

Filling a clear gap in the literature usually covered only briefly in larger texts on the thyroid, Thyroid Disease and Reproduction: A Clinical Guide to Diagnosis and Management is a unique resource for reproductive endocrinologists, obstetrician/gynecologists, and residents and students in these clinical areas.

Many new treatments and diagnostic procedures in ophthalmology have been refined or newly developed during the past four years, a new edition reflecting these changes is most timely.

The scope and aim of the book will be consistent with the first edition, which provides a broad review of the specialist ophthalmology examinations for final year ophthalmology residents and trainees. The book deals primarily with key facts and topics that are important from the examination perspective. Only information and facts that are considered relevant and critical to the exams are covered, with topics that may be of scientific interest, but are not commonly tested in exams, specifically left out. Time-challenged readers will also benefit from the knowledge acquired from various other sources or textbooks that are now organized and synthesized in this book. While not meant to replace the standard textbooks, enough information is contained within the book to serve as the main revision text nearer the exams.

The style and format of this book is intentionally didactic, with questions and short answers. The answer includes a "model opening statement," followed first by a classification system to aid organization of facts, and then the core explanation in concise short notes. "Exam Tips" are inserted to provide an insight into techniques of answering different types of questions and when appropriate, a "Clinical Approach" section is also included.

In the new edition, topics such as new understanding of disease mechanisms (e.g., genetics of eye diseases), new investigations (e.g., OCT), and novel procedures and treatment (e.g., the use of antivascular endothelial growth factors, new refractive surgical techniques) are covered.

This book will be a valuable guide to the final year ophthalmology residents and trainees taking the specialist ophthalmology examinations
