This little book, handsomely printed and illustrated, is an elaboration of the author's Beaumont Lecture on renal lithiasis. A considerable portion of the text is devoted to reports of the animal experiments on which the author bases his view that vitamin A deficiency plays a major role in the development of certain types of renal stone. A section on operative treatment comes next, and finally diet lists of foods high in acid ash and vitamins. There are a bibliography and an index.
