This book is the continuation of one which was previously published by the author with the name of "Apuntes de Fisiología Endocrina." It deals with the anatomy, embryology, histology and physiology of the genital organs, thyroids, adrenals, pancreas, parathyroids, pineal body and thymus, as well as with endocrine abnormalities and with diseases due either to endocrine hypofunction or to endocrine hyperfunction. The pictures showing endocrine abnormalities and those of patients with endocrine diseases belong to the files of the Endocrinologic Department of the Civil Hospital of Guadalajara. The last two chapters deal with the correlation between endocrine hormones and vitamins and between malnutrition and endocrine diseases and also with the chemistry of genital hormones. The final section includes 442 references. The book condenses the interesting panorama of the fascinating subject of endocrinology.
