Inborn Errors of Metabolism

Nature volume 81, pages 9697 (22 July 1909) | Download Citation



DR. GARROD delivered before the Royal College of Physicians in June, 1908, his Croonian lectures under the above title, and the present little book is a welcome re-publication of these lectures in a rather more extended form than those actually delivered. The author is well known for his researches on nutrition, metabolism, and the urine, and has always had a special bent in the unravelling of those rarer anomalies which in so many cases are transmitted from generation to generation. It would lead one too far into strictly medical matters to attempt anything in the shape of even a condensed account of the matters specially selected by Dr. Garrod, and so one need only mention that the anomalies treated at length are albinism, cystmaria, alkaptonuria, and pentosuria.
