Thyroid disorders are frequently encountered both in general and specialist clinical practice. Besides overt hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, subclinical forms of these disorders can either present with symptoms or are asymptomatic and picked up incidentally. As thyroid hormones influence the functioning of multiple organs and systems, disorders can alter the clinical profile of illnesses unrelated to the thyroid gland, anesthetic and surgical outcomes. Moreover, in certain physiological stages such as pregnancy, the normal hormonal levels and treatment targets are different and therefore need to be managed differently. Therefore, it becomes important for the clinician, whether a physician or surgeon, to be aware of the latest guidelines in the treatment targets and management of these disorders. This issue covers a spectrum of thyroid disorders, including hormonal and neoplastic disorders, interpretation of thyroid function tests, and the latest advances in diagnosis and treatment.

The Nipah Virus has been in the news recently and has been associated with significant morbidity and mortality. General information and guidelines for this illness compiled by the Hospital Infection Control Committee of Christian Medical College, Vellore, are included in this issue.

Readers are invited to send in their clinical questions on any subject which will be answered by experts in that particular field in the next issue.
