Excerpta Medica is the collective title for a series of monthly journals of medical abstracts covering the fields of clinical and experimental medicine. It is a nonprofit enterprise sanctioned by the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands but dependent on its subscribers for its existence. There are fifteen sections, of which Section XIII is limited to Dermatology and Venereology. The abstracts are written in English, and each abstract is signed. The subscription rate for Section XIII is $25 per year for twelve issues, including an index, classified by author and subject, to be sent on the completion of each volume.
The abstracts are pithy, comprehensive, punctual and well written. Articles, such as case reports, which do not present a significant observation or new therapeutic approach, are listed by title only.
The service is highly recommended to all who are interested in dermatology and venereology.
