The present volume contains 16 contributions and begins with an analysis of steroid secretion by the testis in man. This is followed by studies on the temporal variation of testosterone and plasma gonadotrophins in man; interactions between steroids and gonadotropins; gonadotrophins and plasma testosterone in senescence; androgen secretion in male hypogonadism; and testosterone metabolism and action in testicular feminization syndrome. Subsequent chapters deal with male sexual precocity; "fertile eunuchism" (Leydig cells reduced in number and size with preserved spermatogenesis); male idiopathic hypogonadism associated with idiopathic hypothyroidism, and with idiopathic renal tubular acidosis; and the medical management and treatment of male hermaphrodites.
