This book on endocrinology was written for the practitioner of medicine. Considerable emphasis is placed on the clinical recognition of mild disorders of the endocrine glands, and hormone therapy is considered in detail. This edition contains new chapters on obesity and infantilism. There are not many references to recent work done by American investigators. At times the author does not discriminate clearly between pleuriglandular products of uncertain value and preparations of scientifically proved effectiveness.
