This continues the excellence of the previous editions. The author has endeavored to bring the book up to date by adding sections on thorium X dermatomyositis and has expanded the chapter on avitaminoses. The book is exceedingly well written and well balanced with a useful chapter presenting an index of preliminary diagnosis for students.
