New chapters have been added on dysentery, syphilis and actinomycosis of the intestines. The brevity of the chapter on actinomycosis hardly suffices to adequately discuss this disease. There is a tendency in this book to group different processes under the same heading. Thus "Intestinal Ulcers" includes distinct etiologic entities. Scientific exactness would demand that separate diseases be given separate discussion; otherwise there is danger that they may lose their individuality. Hyperplastic tuberculosis of the intestine does not receive enough attention.
