This monograph summarizes the present knowledge of conditions in which the leukocyte count is decreased. The material is timely, for, as Dr. Christian says in the preface, "interest in leukopenia and agranulocytosis has been increased markedly in the present period because not'infrequently both appear as toxic manifestations of the therapeutic use of sulfonamide drugs." The subject matter is well arranged and presented, and the bibliography of 152 references is selected from the rather extensive literature on the subject. Of especial value are the sections on etiologic factors and on treatment.
