The comparative pathophysiology of endocrine diseases that occur in the pituitary, thyroids, parathyroids, adrenals, and islets of Langerhans of food-producing animals and horses will be presented.
Pituitary Gland: Development of the pituitary gland; Diseases will include inflammation, neoplasms, and pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID) in horses.
Thyroid Glands: Physiology of thyroid follicular and C cells; Diseases will include goiter and neoplasms, such as C-cell tumors in cattle and horses and thyroid follicular tumors in horses.
Parathyroid Glands: Development and calcium regulation; Diseases will include amyloidosis, oxyphil hyperplasia, adenomas in horses, parturient hypocalcemia in cattle, and secondary hyperparathyroidism in horses.
Adrenal Glands: Structure and function; Diseases will include accessory adrenal tissue, septicemia/toxemia (relative adrenal insufficiency, RAI and critical illness-related corticosteroid insufficiency, CIRCI), adrenocortical adenomas, and pheochromocytoma.
Islets of Langerhans: Structure and function; Diseases will include islet cell tumors in cattle and metabolic syndrome in horses.
