This is a reprint of the author's article in the third volume of the "Handbuch der inneren Sekretion," edited by Max Hirsch of Berlin. It has an appendix giving a review of the most recent literature. It is a mine of information for internists, neurologists, physiologists and pharmacologists, and approaches the various phenomena of the vegetative system from every possible angle. The author goes far in stressing the part played by lesions of the still somewhat hypothetic hypothalamic and striatal vegetative centers in a multitude of conditions, including epilepsy, migraine, arterial hypertension, myopathies and diabetes mellitus. However, the wealth of concisely presented objective data makes the book of equal value as a work of reference to those who may not share many of the views held by the author.
