While the study of the pathology of carbohydrate metabolism is well presented here, the volume is designed for the investigator and student of internal medicine and the preclinical sciences rather than as a practical guide to the clinician. In the opening section, the researches on experimental diabetes are divided into three periods, the Minkowski-Banting era (pancreatic diabetes and insulin), the Houssay-Young-Long era (the roles of the anterior pituitary gland and the adrenal cortex in carbohydrate metabolism) and the alloxan diabetes era. This is followed by sections on types of pituitary diabetes in human pathology, insulin, pathologic anatomy of the pancreas in diabetes mellitus, diabetic coma, hyperinsulinism, the pathology of the renal threshold, and glycogen disease (Von Gierke's disease). An extensive discussion of acidosis is also included. The presentation concludes with a brief discussion of the so-called benign melliturias.
