Many chapters in this edition have been rewritten and much of the text that was in the previous edition has been deleted, as it was no longer considered in accord with the best modern teaching. Reference has been made for the first time to such new subjects as psittacosis, immunization to measles and scarlet fever, massive collapse of the lung, the antitoxin treatment of erysipelas, vaccinal encephalitis, hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. In its present form the book presents a conservative view of the essentials of internal medicine.
