Although this is described in the preface as a monograph written for the physician, surgeon and investigator, its chief value would be to the investigator for whom it presents a comprehensive discussion of known and supposed hypophyseal functions with an unusually extensive bibliography. The physician or surgeon will find adequate descriptions of acromegaly, giantism and dwarfism, but the spirit of the book is more investigative than clinical.
The first part of the book presents a detailed description of the anatomy, embryology and phylogeny of the hypophysis. Part two considers the cytophysiology and biochemistry of the anterior lobe of the hypophysis.
