This volume of Lewandowsky's epoch-making work on the nervous system contains a succinct and yet complete account of the glands with internal secretion in their relation to the nervous system. The following subjects are fully discussed: exophthalmic goiter, myxedema, cretinism, tetany, dystrophia adiposogenitalis, acromegaly, pineal gland disorders, diseases of the adrenals, status thymolymphaticus, agenitalism and hypogenitalism (insuffisance pluriglandulaire), nervous manifestations of normal and precocious menopause in relation to the glands of internal secretion, adiposis dolorosa (Dercum's disease) and Paget's disease. Each of the subjects is treated from the clinical point of view mainly, although the theoretical aspect is not lost sight of. This volume, though part of the large work on the nervous system, is complete in itself and will serve as a compendium on the clinical and practical aspects of internal secretory disorders.
