This volume will interest every physician who comes in contact with the most prevalent of all diseases. In this second edition of his popular work, Pelouze has added much to the scope of the discussion of gonorrhea, its complications and sequelae, but has not striven for encyclopedic comprehensiveness, nor sacrificed any of the direct simplicity that gives emphasis to his literary style. On the basis of his own wide clinical experience, the author deplores the modern tendency to overtreat patients with gonorrhea. He outlines with considerable clarity conservative and sane methods of management of the disease in its various stages, which have met with gratifying results in his own office and in clinical practice. He does not offer empiric routines to be blindly followed, but makes a commendable effort to rationalize the methods of preference on the basis of the pathophysiologic principles that are involved.
