In this edition the sections on gynecology and genitourinary diseases have been entirely rewritten, and the list of drugs has been revised in accordance with the new Pharmacopeia and National Formulary. The publisher points out that the advances in medicine have been so great that scarcely a page of the book has gone unchanged. Special attention is called, however, to new material on chemotherapy, shock treatment, burns, deficiency diseases and nutrition. Many new color plates have been added to the present edition of this well known encyclopedia.
