In the foreword to this volume the editor states that the purpose of the work is to bring practitioners and students up-to-date on the newer knowledge of medicine which has accumulated so rapidly in recent years. Indeed new material has increased so rapidly that the editor has included a chapter in this volume discussing progress made since the publication of the first.
The contributors are F. Schellong (heart and vascular system), N. Henning (digestive system), H. Schulten (urinary system), K. Hansen (allergy), K. Hansen and W. Gronemeyer (toxicology) and the editor, who contributes a chapter on the newer aspects of diagnosis and therapy. As in the first volume, there is a great deal of informative discussion on the normal and pathological physiology of the systems covered and the theoretical bases of allergy and toxicology. There is also considerable detail regarding laboratory, roentgenographic and other technical tests and even physical diagnosis.
