Saundby has arranged alphabetically an indiscriminate list of subjects, covering not only what the title indicates, but other fields of medicine as well. He includes not only symptoms but many diseases and several pathologic tests. In the selection of the subjects covered there seems to be neither rhyme nor reason. No subject is covered completely. Such subjects as acne, alopecia, genital spots, immunity, keloid or paralysis agitans can hardly be listed as urgent. In the discussion of treatment the author is exceptionally free in his references to proprietaries, some ethical and others not so good. As a reference work to the things in it the book has a certain value.
