Regular price $45.00 Sale

The influence on the individual's constitution on the incidence of disease has long been recognized. Garrod showed that constitutional variation in function, as well as in structure, can give rise to what he termed "chemical malformations" :alkaptonuria, cystinuria, pentosuria, etc. The book was based on his Croonian Lectures, published in Lancet, 1908. A second edition appeared in 1923. It was reprinted with supplement by H. Harris, London, 1963. Garrod's first paper on the subject dealt with alkaptonuria (Lancet, 1901, 2, 1484-6).
