Here, designed especially for the general practitioner is a manual on diseases of the skin. The success of the first edition prompted a development of the new edition, with special emphasis on the five day treatment of syphilis, the treatment of burns and the use of the sulfonamides in dermatology. The association of the senior author with the Navy caused some changes in the book especially to adapt it to the use of naval medical officers. The book is in every sense a practical handbook for the physician who does not specialize in dermatology. It should serve, however, also as an excellent work for teachers of dermatology, who are necessarily limited in the amount of time that may be given to instruction in this subject.
