In this book is presented from the medical standpoint a fairly comprehensive study of primary liver disease, particularly jaundice of hepatic origin, the various infections, cysts and tumors of the liver; the cirrhoses with differential diagnostic methods, and the mechanism and treatment of hemorrhage. Medical and surgical indications make up the bulk of the text. It is a text not altogether easy for the American physician to assimilate. The vast number of "cures" for alimentary disease that are found throughout central Europe contribute the basis for much of the therapy. At best the subject has a greater pathologic than clinical interest, excepting from the point of view of differential diagnosis, which is well handled in well arranged tables. There is a regrettable absence of the newer literature bearing on the relation of calcium metabolism and jaundice. The treatment of hemorrhage due to jaundice is inadequately handled. There are no illustrations.
