The twenty-nine chapters of this edition are logically divided according to the usual scientific groupings, starting with the normal embryology and physiology of the skin and including chapters on symptomatology, histology, diagnosis and etiology and a general treatise on the treatment of cutaneous diseases. Principal chapters include those devoted to the inflammations, the pyogenic infections, the treponematoses, virus diseases, diseases caused by metabolic disturbances, avitaminoses, malignant and benign neoplastic diseases, mycotic diseases and special chapters dealing with diseases of the hair and of the nails. The text is clearly printed on paper of fair grade; the black and white illustrations, most of which are original, depict the respective diseases faithfully and concern themselves largely with manifestations in the darker skinned races. The color plates are excellent. In spite of the number of contributors—thirty-one besides the principal author—the sequence is in no way distorted. This is the best textbook in Spanish
