This is the third volume of a series dealing with advances in internal medicine. A fourth is in preparation. This volume is, in reality, a series of nine monographs, for the most part on totally unrelated subjects and each by a different author or authors. It is a bit difficult to see how the selection of material was made, but whatever the method of selection the subjects are dealt with in an excellent fashion. To review this book adequately would require a review of each of the monographs. It must suffice to say that the following rather specialized subjects are dealt with in a highly competent manner: Use of British Anti-Lewisite; Current Concepts of Hemolytic Anemia; Host, Drug and Parasite Factors that Modify the Therapeutic Action of Penicillin; Streptomycin in the Treatment of Tuberculosis; Histoplasmosis; Treatment of Hyperthryroidism with Anti-Thyroid Compounds; Diagnosis of Disease by Enzymic Methods; Plasma Fractionation; Mechanism
