This textbook was prepared with the idea of including as many of the essentials of medicine within as small a compass as possible, while avoiding a book in the nature of a synopsis. It is a compilation of material by various authors. In this edition, additional information is given concerning the prevention and attenuation of measles by means of convalescent serum and whole blood; and the newer methods of diphtheria immunization are presented. The sections on pernicious anemia and purpura have also been brought down to date. The information is given in a clear, concise manner. Unlike other textbooks of medicine, this book includes chapters on diseases of infants and disorders of the skin. The book will be found valuable for the student as well as for the practitioner.
