Abstract

Goldzieher has prepared an excellent reference book on endocrine function and disturbances. The first two chapters are on the morphology and function of the endocrine glands. Next is a chapter on the examination of the patient, with descriptions of the various tests for endocrine function. Disturbances of development, growth, nutrition and carbohydrate, protein, fat, calcium, salt and water and iron metabolism follow. Circulatory, digestive, sexual and nervous and psychic abnormalities are also discussed. The last fifty pages deal with the therapy in disturbances of the thyroid, pituitary and adrenal glands and the gonads, parathyroids and pancreas.
