In this complete, excellently planned and well written monograph on the subject of ulcer, the author not only considers the condition in its entirety from the medical point of view but discusses the surgical aspect also. Though the influence of the von Bergmann (author of the neurogenic theory) school, of which the author is a member, is evident at times, all theories are justly interpreted in the light of the author's immense experience and his extensive review of the literature. The plan of the book is similar to that of others on the same subject. Following a short historical sketch, the frequency and pathology of ulcer are described. The various theories of etiology and interpretation of the symptoms of ulcer and its complications are considered in great detail. In addition to the usual material the chapters on examination of the patient include roentgen technic and interpretation as well as gastroscopy.
