This is a brief monograph on chronic cholecystitis. It is entirely a clinical study and largely nontheoretic, and is presented as "a practical guide for the general practitioner." The author reviews clearly the more elaborate experimental contributions that have been made in the field it covers, particularly in the study of the diseased gallbladder, and translates these studies into simpler observations, which can be made at the bedside for the most part. The book will be of interest to those who read French and will prove instructive to those who are primarily interested in disease of the gallbladder, be they surgeons or internists.
