Biochemical Disorders in Human Disease

JAMA. 1957;165(9):1214. doi:10.1001/jama.1957.02980270124027

This book deals with the whole gamut of human disease: gastrointestinal, hepatic and biliary, hematologic, hypertensive, renal and genitourinary, adrenal, thyroid and parathyroid, nervous, osseous, muscular, nutritional, and metabolic. British and American authors, each well known in his field, have contributed to it. The subjects are treated on an "organ basis" rather than on a chemical functional basis, which is the more prevalent custom in textbooks of this kind. Treatment of the material is thorough, well documented and critical, but at the same time practical and clinically oriented. The editors have succeeded in preserving the many advantages of multiple authorship without obvious duplications. In this age of biochemistry it is safe to predict that this new book will be eagerly accepted by scientifically minded physicians, investigators, and students of medicine as one of the best available introductions to and sources for the subject.
