In this handbook Cramer wrote the section devoted to the functional nervous diseases of childhood, Bruns described the diseases of the spinal cord and of the peripheral nerves as they occur in childhood, while the chapters on diseases of the brain and its membranes were furnished by Ziehen. The book contains an account of the most recent work in the neurologic field pertaining to the period of which it treats. As a concise and yet comprehensive treatise on the nervous diseases of childhood, it will no doubt take as high rank as the larger work of Oppenheim, which covers theentire subject of nervous diseases. The book will be found of value by both the general practitioner and the pediatrician.
