Thyroid Eye Disease is a fitting addition to the Endocrine Updates series. The aim of these publications is to provide the clinician with cutting edge, yet succinct, access to the latest advances in endocrinology. Dr. Bahn and her colleagues have joined her in presenting the most recent and exciting developments. These investigators are increasing the quality of life for thyroid eye disease patients. Thyroid Eye Disease continues the standard of excellence as the fourteenth volume in this series of topical updates. Patients afflicted with thyroid eye disease or Graves' ophthalmopathy (GO) may experience not only pain and visual loss, but also disfigurement. Full understanding of pathogenesis has been elusive, and treatment modalities are imperfect. As with other conditions, more effective intervention will follow only after a better understanding of pathogenesis is reached. The goal of this volume is to give an overview by leaders in the field of the present state of the art both in pathogenesis and clinical aspects of GO.
