Although climate manifests itself upon the endocrine systems of animals in a great variety of well known ways, probably none is more generally important than the influence of tropical acclimatization upon the female menstrual cycle. The symptomatology of the menstrual disturbances accompanying acclimatization is well known to any physician who has practiced in tropical areas, but actual statistical studies and analyses of the symptoms involved are not generally available. The recent war presented an opportunity to make a study of this problem, and such an investigation was therefore undertaken. Circumstances unfortunately made it necessary to abandon the study after a relatively short period. Despite the limited value that can be attached to the results that were obtained, however, it is felt that they are of sufficient interest to merit their brief summary in the literature.
