The thirteenth edition of this old standby is in much the same format as the previous volumes. As every one knows, Dr. Savill's system was to work from the principal symptoms on to the correct diagnosis. Hence the material is arranged somewhat differently from the usual textbook style. There is much useful information between these covers, even though no "system" or "short cut" will provide an easy road to secure diagnosis without experience and fundamental training.
