This work is much more compact than that of von Noorden, less concerned with abstruse and theoretical chemical and metabolic problems, and hence, perhaps better suited to the needs of the general physician who is looking rather to the practical than to the ultra scientific side of the questions involved in this disease. The values of the different foodstuffs are considered and different methods of feeding, as by enemata, the subcutaneous route, the forced feeding by the stomach, etc., are discussed. Obesity, diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus, gout, and urinary calculi are handled in a satisfactory, though not extended manner. Good plates help in the understanding of gout and the pancreatic pathology of diabetes.
