The actual substance of this little monograph, namely the part dealing with chemotherapy of gonococcic infections, occupies a relatively small part of the book; the remainder is to some extent unessential. Even in the sections on chemotherapy matters of common knowledge are reported at considerable length. The description of the systemic complications of gonococcic infections does not seem very adequate; arthritis is dealt with on one page; there is no discussion of general gonococcic sepsis or of the interesting cutaneous lesions. The reviewer disagrees sharply with the statement (p. 76) that removal of so-called chronic focal infections (teeth, tonsils, etc.) serves any particular purpose in gonococcic infections.
