This book is dedicated to the countless thousands of urologically handicapped children, and rightfully so. Only the father of present-day urology, Dr. Meredith Campbell, could present such a masterful work. The fact that this edition is in one volume makes it a handy reference book for the library of the general practitioner, pediatrician, urologist, abdominal surgeon, hospital resident, or intern.

The preface explains clearly the reasons for the progress of urology of infants and children. In each chapter the author's vast amount of experience and the mass of material he has been able to study are ably presented. Observations of other workers are freely cited. An extensive bibliography based on the author's studies of the world's literature pertaining to urology in infants and children is alphabetically arranged at the end of each chapter.

Every phase of urinary tract disease is covered systematically, including etiology, pathology, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment. Definitive
