This contains the results of further studies by Levaditi along the lines laid down in his previous book "Ectodermoses neurotropes: Poliomyélite, Encéphalite, Herpés," reviewed in The Journal, April 21, 1923. The present book deals mainly with simple herpes and herpes zoster, but in the final chapter the etiologic relationship between simple herpes and epidemic encephalitis is taken up for renewed discussion. Much new and original experimental work is related, and the large and difficult literature is thoroughly sifted. The abundant and uniformly excellent illustrations add greatly to the pleasure of the reader.
