This second part of the sixth volume deals with the thyroid and parathyroid glands and with the islands of Langerhans. It has been prepared by Dr. Bargmann. Since the parathyroids are distinct from the thyroid, both genetically and functionally, Dr. Bargmann does not like to use the name parathyroid. He prefers to call these glands epithelkörperchen, the little epithelial bodies. This section constitutes a thorough review of researches in these fields in all countries up to the time of publication. It includes an exhaustive list of papers published and is indispensable for all research students in the field or for any student who wants to become thoroughly acquainted with the present status of our knowledge in any part of it.
