This is a short treatise on the indications and technic of sclerosing injections for varicose veins, hemorrhoids, hydrocele, bursa, ganglion, nevus and anal fissure. There is an appendix of useful prescriptions and some points on the organization of an "injection clinic." The text is clear and concise; the illustrations and printing are excellent in spite of having been produced in war torn England. In 115 pages the author has described and summarized all the practical points of injection therapy. An excellent chapter on the operative treatment of varicose veins has been written by Mr. Rodney Maingot. Unusual for the American reader is the combined use of lithium salicylate with quinine (Maingot's solution), which gives a gelatinous mass and is said to avoid cinchonism. This volume is highly recommended for the general practitioner. It contains all he needs to know about this form of treatment.
