This section of the larger work contains three brief chapters on the general problem of fat metabolism as related to the endocrine glands. There is a chapter on morphology or, rather, the occurrence of fats in the endocrine glands themselves by Dr. Bererich and Dr. Jaffe; a short chapter by Dr. Handovsky on the chemistry of the aliphatic lipoids; and a somewhat longer chapter by Drs. Westphal and Mann of Hanover on the clinical physiology and pathology of fat metabolism. This chapter is the most important in the present section. The authors deal particularly with the disturbances in the lipoids associated with changes in the endocrine glands, such as the change in the distribution of fats in the female on puberty, the decrease in the blood cholesterol during gestation in mammals, and the increase in blood cholesterol in hypothyroidism and the lipemia of diabetes. The authors are to be commended
