The Hunt for the Parathyroid Gland is a part fact, part fiction overview of the discovery of the parathyroid gland by a Swedish scientist in 1880.

The discovery of the parathyroid gland in humans in 1880 by an unknown Swedish medical student, Ivar Viktor Sandström, ended a 30 year search for its exact location within the human body, following its discovery in an Indian rhino 30 years before.   It is one of the most engaging and remarkable stories in the history of medicine.  This book offers a fascinating insight into its discovery.

Endocrinologists and ENT health professionals, both in clinical practice and researchers, as well as anyone with an interest in the history of medicine, will find this a fascinating insight into one of the 19th century’s key medical discoveries.
