This book is designed to approach the endocrinopathies as the practitioner meets them. One is therefore not presented with a list of glandular disturbances and the usual descriptions of the etiology, symptomatology and diagnosis, but is led from the presenting manifestations to the incrimination of the involved gland by a differential diagnosis of important symptoms. Of thirty-eight chapters, the first two deal very briefly with the embryology, anatomy, histology and physiology. A chapter on the examination of the patient is included and covers the essential factors in the history and physical examination. Laboratory procedures are discussed, including the basal metabolic rate; analysis of the blood; dextrose, fat and salt tolerance tests, and hormone and pharmacologic tests.

Chapters 28 to 38 describe therapeutic procedures considered briefly and concisely.
