The publication of the fourth edition of this authoritative handbook is indicative of its usefulness, which depends in part on its brevity, succinctness and diagrammatic figures. This edition contains important modifications in the life history of Strongyloides stercoralis and additions to the section on Filarioidea of Microfilaria malayi, Brug, 1927, which has been distinguished from M. bancrofti and has been found widely in Malaya, the East Indies, India and China.
