This book attempts to cover briefly the entire scope of pediatrics and to give aids to diagnosis and treatment. However, most of the material is inadequately covered, serious omissions are present and much of the material is obsolete. Intrathecal therapy is recommended for meningococcic meningitis, a procedure that has been discarded. None of the newer developments in the prophylaxis of rheumatic fever or the diagnosis and surgical treatment of congenital cardiac disease are mentioned.

There is little in the book that will be of aid to the student or practitioner.
