The authors present a complete review of the diseases associated with metabolic disturbances. In this classification are included diseases of the thyroid, pineal, parathyroid and suprarenal glands; nutritional disturbances occurring with obesity, emaciation and diabetes mellitus, and metabolic changes that sometimes accompany lesions of the central nervous system, tuberculosis and the anemias, and particularly the leukemias. Each form of metabolic disturbance is discussed in detail and amply illustrated with clinical records taken from the authors' own experience. The Benedict-Roth apparatus was used in determining the basal metabolic rates. An adequate bibliography at the end of each chapter aids in making this monograph valuable to the practitioner.
