This volume represents the collaborative efforts of 13 physicians and research workers in the field of clinical endocrinology to present both the normal and abnormal aspects of human reproduction. After a general introductory chapter on sex hormone relationships the topics discussed include ovulation, menstruation, endocrine changes during pregnancy, disturbances of pregnancy, gynecologic disorders, and infertility. Other chapters are devoted to the anatomy and physiology of the placenta and to endocrine disorders in the male and female reproductive organs. The material is well integrated and each topic is covered in a comprehensive and up-to-date manner. Each chapter concludes with an extensive bibliography and the text is liberally illustrated with excellent reproductions, including both photomicrographs and color plates. This book can be recommended as an authoritative text in the field of human reproduction.
