Synopses of the various medical specialties can be useful when properly employed. Medical students can use them as a guide to their work. The general practitioner can utilize such a synopsis for quick and easy reference. In the present edition of this excellent work, many paragraphs have been rewritten and new sections added. More attention has been given to the material on treatment. Particular stress is laid on the clinical features of diseases. The book contains no reference to the literature, since it is intended particularly to give the student the elements of pediatrics, which can later be complemented by the employment of a more comprehensive textbook and a study of the literature. Considering the small size of the work, an abundance of excellent material is furnished.
