This volume combines the pertinent theoretical background and the practical clinical considerations of endocrinology in early life. It covers the thyroid, adrenals, parathyroids, gonads, pituitary and pancreatic islets. In connection with the parathyroids and posterior pituitary, valuable discussions of mineral metabolism and renal function also appear. Concise and complete information for performance of the more reliable function tests is provided along with clear data for interpretation of such tests. The present status of therapy is also well presented although in the treatment of diabetes, the therapeutic ideas, while sound, do not represent the only acceptable viewpoints.
