This sumptuous volume is the work of the distinguished Professor of Urology at the Johns Hopkins University, aided, as we learn from the Preface, by a number of confreres. It opens with a chapter on hermaphroditism in literature and art by Professor D. M. Robinson, of the Chair of Archaeology, and Dr. L. Edelstein, Associate in the History of Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University. Their contribution which is necessarily compressed is illustrated by many plates, not a few of them of peculiar…

The problem of hermaphroditism is one which has always attracted attention so that much has been written on the subject. One of the finest works appeared in 1937, with the publication of Young's
Hormonal Sex Reversal in a Female
TLDR
Cases similar to that to be described, in which virilization appears to have started at an earlier stage of development, are most unusual and in fact only two are on record.
Agranulocytosis Caused by Amidopyrine
TLDR
All equivocal cases are better reared as boys: not only are intersex males more common, but in the 'genetic females masculinization is due to the adrenal 'cortical secretions, the androgenic influence of which is such as to render them happier in the male role.
Foetal Adrenal Hyperplasia
TLDR
Unless one group of conditions can be sharply differentiated from the heterogenous and complex manifestations of diseases associated with adrenal hyperplasia is sharply differentiated, the assessment of the present day management and therapy of such conditions will be indefinitely retarded.

TLDR
It is believed that a positional effect is exerted which modifies the ability of the hormones to express themselves, and there is a strong tendency for true hermaphroditism to be associated with a bicornuate uterus in primates.

The lipoidoses, or diseases of lipoid metabolism, have been extensively studied in recent years. No case similar to that described below has been discovered in the literature, the essential feature
578 NUCLEI AND SEX
TLDR
It seems agreed that sex is genetically determined, and therefore scientifically the sex of an individual should be based upon the genotype, and the gonadal method has advantages and is used as the basis of the Klebs classification of intersexes.
Gonad Hormones and Sex Differentiation
TLDR
Professor Coe attempted to bridge the gap between sex-determining mechanisms dependent upon gene action alone in invertebrates and the current conception of hormonal influences by unfolded for us the devious pathways utilized by invertebrate to attain the same end, i.e., the reproduction of the species.
