Abstract

This review, as was the last one on this subject,1 is written by and for clinicians. Those who desire a more comprehensive review are referred to the second edition of Van Dyke's book, "The Physiology and Pharmacology of the Pituitary Body."2 Other reviews have been published in the current literature.3

We have attempted to list our references under different headings, but overlapping has occurred. There have been errors of omission and commission in selecting these references, and not all of them are of equal importance. It is hoped, however, that the review is sufficiently complete to inform the reader as to current developments and trends in this young and fast changing field of endocrinology.
