This pocket sized volume is one of the practical medicine series being published at present in France. It is a complete, well planned and well written as well as not too lengthy or verbose monograph on congenital pyloric stenosis. Not only is this condition discussed in its entirety from the medical stand-point, but the surgical aspect is considered at length. The plan of the book is similar to others of the same character.
