Short accounts of the normal thyroid, thyroid diseases, diagnostic methods, and treatments. Special attention to the basis for decisions. Most of the text is probably clear enough to patients, their families, and other nonprofessional readers, but the author often appears to be unaware that he has written medicalese. That this primer has run through so many editions is probably evidence enough that it is adequately understood by its intended audience.
