This intensive study of 241 cases of vaginitis represents a large amount of careful and thorough investigation. Not only was the medical aspect studied but also the social. In the group of 241 cases, 79 per cent were judged to present positive clinical gonorrhea, 14 per cent were suggestive and 7 per cent were negative clinically. Among 113 cases in which other members of the patient's family were examined, 92 per cent showed positive infections. It was found that treatment did not abort the disease, which is self limited and usually fades out within a few months. A number of practical recommendations are made. This book will prove to be of great assistance to gynecologists, pediatricians, bacteriologists and every one interested in the social welfare of a community.
