The Testis

  • Daniel D. Federman
Part of the Contemporary Endocrinology book series (COE, volume 2)


This chapter on the testis follows the outline used in the past. As before, the aim is to present an integrated review rather than an exhaustive compilation of references. Similarly, the emphasis is selective and will, in particular, stress testicular differentiation, puberty and gonadotropinreleasing hormone (LRH), androgen action and resistance, and some new aspects of infertility.
