This book recalls Cabot's "Differential Diagnosis" cases, the first of which were published in 1912. Many a student and physician read those case reports for the pleasure and instruction of pitting their skill against Dr. Cabot's. The author, a man of skill and long clinical experience, here collects the histories of about 100 of his patients, in similar style. The result is equally pleasant and makes stimulating and informative reading. The case reports deal mainly with physical diagnosis, give a smaller, but still adequate, amount of attention to laboratory diagnosis and scarcely touch therapy. The book makes ideal medical reading for relaxed hours.
