This chapter presents common cases that are clinically relevant to endocrine surgery. These include common surgical presentations often encountered at outpatient clinic, such as thyroid nodules/goitres and hypercalcaemia due to primary hyperparathyroidism, as well as important emergency surgical complications.Although most endocrine surgical conditions are managed by few surgeons with a special interest in these diseases, knowledge of the initial management and immediate treatment of complications is essential for all surgical trainees, particularly as some of these are life-threatening. These cases have been written to incorporate relevant pathophysiology, clinical information, diagnosis, and surgical management of thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal disease.
