The remarkable correlation of function between the various endocrine glands shows how well Nature has endowed our bodies with a complex mechanism. The unfolding of these correlations gives us an insight into many obscure problems.
For some time I have been working along embryological lines in order to solve some of the correlations. It is quite natural to look for a solution in embryology and much data have been supplied to support this hypothesis.
One of the most definite correlations is that of the pituitary gland and suprarenal cortex. In this particular correlation, we are treading upon firm ground, for
