Abstract

Nobecourt discusses the diseases of the urinary tract in children. The volume contains 345 pages, 234 of which are devoted to various forms of nephritis; 34 are given to pyelonephritis, 16 to the malignant tumors of the kidney in children, 18 to orthostatic albuminuria, and the rest of the book is devoted to paroxysmal hemoglobinuria due to chilling, and lithiasis.

The book contains a number of interesting clinical observations, to which, perhaps, more space is devoted than is necessary. A more detailed account of the functional diagnosis is missing. The volume does not concern itself at all with the newer work of trying to elucidate the part the tissues play in fluid exchange of the patient. The pathologic anatomic data is rather meager.
