In keeping with the usual Year Book style, this volume consists for the most part of reviews of important clinical and experimental articles in the field of endocrinology published during 1950. Much space has naturally been devoted to corticotropin (ACTH) and cortisone, but ample consideration has also been given to the thyroid, parathyroids, and other glands of internal secretion. The opening chapter presents a survey of the advances in endocrinology over the past 10 years. The broad selection of articles and the liberal annotations by the editor should prove stimulating to the general practitioner who wants to keep up to date in the field of clinical endocrinology.
