This book is a practical one, laying special stress on diagnosis and treatment and less on pathology and etiology. This makes it rather more useful to the practitioner, perhaps, thatn experience, there are certain chapters that are especially elaborated because the author is particularly interested in that subjectr. Thus the cahpter on "Pseudomasturabation" covers six pages and is admirable. The book will be useful to the practitioner who wants a small, inexpensive, but reliable book on diseases of children.
