The authors of this section, IV, being fully aware of the taxonomic difficulties and controversies that surely are to be encountered in studies of thyroid gland tumors, by a commendable schema have reduced these hazards to a minimum. At the outset, they present the pseudo-tumors or nodular hyperplasia, cysts and chronic inflammatory lesions that are peculiar to the thyroid gland.
The benign and malignant tumors are presented following a convenient and revealing outline. After the subject, synonyms and related terms, definition of the subject, gross and microscopic descriptions, etiology and histogenesis, natural history, prognosis, differential diagnosis and treatment are given.
