The author of this book, widely experienced in the medical aspects of dentistry, has undertaken to bring together under one cover the oral manifestations of practically all the diseases to which the human body is heir. The result is a scholarly, readable, well documented and beautifully illustrated work which no dentist can afford not to read and which will be a valuable reference for physicians wishing to identify obscure lesions of the mouth or desiring to review all possible oral manifestations of systemic diseases. After introductory chapters on medicodental relations, oral consultation and general laboratory procedures, the author begins a series of sections, the first of which covers diseases generally considered intrinsic to the mouth, such as oral fusospirochetosis, heavy metal stomatitis, lingual diseases and gingivitis and the oral aspects of dermatology. Then follow sections on the general medical diseases, grouped under the headings organ systems, metabolism and infectious granulomas.
