This volume includes the discussion of diseases of doubtful etiology; those caused by protozoa, spirochetes and animal parasites; diseases due to physical, chemical and organic agents; and deficiency diseases. Revision of all of the chapters has brought the subject matter up to date. This has been done for the most part by the original contributors. The former chapter on syphilis by Osler has been revised by Lewis A. Conner, and the one on yellow fever by Carroll has been rewritten by Thomas McCrae. The authoritative character of the original work is retained throughout. Of special interest are the chapters on smallpox by Beardsley, on vaccination by Dock, on measles by Ruhräh, on typhus fever by McCrae, on malaria by Craig, on syphilis by Osler, Churchman and Conner and on diseases caused by animal parasites by Stiles. The chapters devoted to deficiency diseases include the important discoveries of the past few
