In view of the increasing practical importance of measurements of skin temperature, it is useful to have available in monograph form a rather critical analysis of the various methods in use, and a discussion of the influence of various environmental factors on skin temperature in normal and pathologic individuals. In the short treatment given, the references to clinical literature have been made brief and, in some respects, inadequate. The important underlying physical and physiologic principles have, however, been carefully outlined. The monograph should therefore be of interest and value to any one undertaking practical work involving skin temperature measurements.
