The material in this monograph is concisely and ably presented, and it will doubtless prove of value to students and practitioners alike. The author strives to give a practical outline of present-day views on chronic indigestion and related syndromes, based on personal experiences.
The first ten chapters are devoted to a discussion of the commoner organic and functional derangements of the gastro-intestinal tract. Accompanying each chapter are plates illustrating characteristic lesions as shown by roentgen examination. The routine laboratory procedures employed in this field are described, and a section is devoted to the taking of case histories, physical examination and special investigations.
A few prescriptions suitable for the treatment of "chronic indigestion" are included, the drugs employed being those in general use and of recognized value. A bibliography of about 168 references is included.
