In their preface to this book the Editors acknowledge that the interdependence of the fields of biochemistry and medicine is becoming increasingly apparent. For this reason it seemed to them desirable to prepare a book which would “assemble, relate, and interpret the known facts concerning the biochemical disorders that underlie or are associated with human disease.” They and their collaborating authors have succeeded admirably. The subjects chosen for discussion are those which most readily lend themselves to a biochemical approach. The first chapters deal with diseases of the gastro-intestinal tract and of the liver and biliary tract. These are followed by chapters on anemias, diseases of the blood and the clotting mechanism, and on hypertension. In subsequent chapters, diseases of the kidney and genito-urinary tract, of the nervous system, and of muscle are discussed. Endocrine topics are dealt with in chapters on diseases of the adrenal, diseases of iodine metabolism, diseases of bone and the parathyroid, diseases of the reproductive organs, and diabetes mellitus.
