A case with alcoholic cirrhosis of liver is described that was combined with manifested gynecomastia, atrophia of testes and impotence--Silvestrini--Corda syndrome. Changes in the endocrine state of the patient were established--a tendency to reduced estrogens in plasma (estradiol), increased blood cortisol and reduced excretion of its metabolites in urine. The case is of clinical interest because the severe alcoholic hepatic lesion became the cause of the affection of endocrine state and in this way led to manifested classical syndrome of Silvestrini--Corda.
