This book is an abbreviation of the standard German texts on endocrinology and is especially rich in photographs of patients. The accounts are brief and accurate, but it is regrettable that in a book primarily for practitioners there should be inadequate discussion of certain elementary principles of therapy. The indications for surgical procedure and the proper preoperative use of iodine in cases of exophthalmic goiter are hardly touched on; the importance of sodium in adrenal insufficiency is not mentioned at all, and there is no adequate discussion of the essential chemical changes in hyperparathyroidism.
