We have summed up current knowledge about the formation and lysis of corpus luteum with the co-ordinate intervention of luteotrophic and luteolytic factors. Then we re-examined the function of the corpus luteum in the physiologic menstrual cycle and in the first period of pregnancy, with special attention to luteal insufficiency as a cause of endocrine miscarriage.
