This work represents, in a well organized form, a compilation of numerous observations on the distribution of different forms of phosphorus in tissues, organs and body fluids under various conditions of health and disease. Although an attempt is made to emphasize the chemical aspects of the methods used, it is quite obvious that this is by no means critical from biochemical or analytic points of view. The data accumulated in some cases are necessarily of doubtful value because of the analytic methods used. Such important forms as phosphoproteins are ignored almost entirely, and nucleotides are stated to be hydrolyzed by phosphatases to phosphoric acid and "hydrocarboné purique ou pyrimidique." The various physiologic and pathologic aspects of phosphorus metabolism are reviewed under the following titles: experimental variations in blood phosphorus; variations in blood phosphorus as a result of the influence of substances influencing carbohydrate metabolism:excretion of phosphorus ; phosphorus in rickets
