In this small book, which is really a detailed enlargement of the monograph "Die Pathologie und Therapie der kindlichen Zuckerkrankheit," published by the same authors in 1926, Priesel and Wagner have presented an up-to-date discussion of the pathologic physiology, diagnosis and treatment of diabetes in children.

The book is divided into two parts. The first six chapters deal with the theoretical, clinical and laboratory aspects of diabetes, and the last two chapters with treatment. An extensive bibliography, chiefly of European literature, is included. Although the authors have nothing new to present regarding either the clinical or the laboratory phase of diabetes, their large experience and the practical manner in which they present their method of handling children make this a worthwhile volume.
