This paper bound volume is in no sense a textbook, being more a brief outline of methods of treatment recently employed in the various ailments of children. The diseases or syndromes are arranged in alphabetical order. Usually little more than a page is given to any particular disorder, the discussion being limited to a brief description of the nature of the disease, occasionally a word as to its etiology or symptomatology, one or more brief paragraphs on treatment, usually including suggestions from a number of writers, and finally a terse conclusion. Some of the treatment recommended varies considerably from that employed in this country. In acrodynia, acetylcholine and the x-rays are recommended. In adiposogenital dystrophy, antisyphilitic treatment has at times been highly successful. In severe tonsillitis and pharyngitis, irrigation of the throat with seltzer water gives relief. For the practitioner of pediatrics, the book has some value. Its convenient arrangement
