Excerpt from The Practitioner, Vol. 94: January-June, 1915
The functions of the various endocrinic glands, their inﬂuence in health and their responsibilities for disease, is a subject which is daily attaining to an ever increasing importance. The interest attaching to the subject is not only physiological and experimental, but in a very special degree clinical, and it is incumbent upon everyone who practises medicine and surgery to keep himself as far as possible in touch with the progress which is being made in this department. To assist our readers in this direction, we determined to gather into a Special number something like an epitome of the present day knowledge of the various questions involved. So vast, however, was the field to be covered that one special number was found to be insufficient, and the material had to be divided into two parts. As will be seen from the contents on the front cover, the February issue will be a continuation of the present one.
