This book is one of the series on infantile pathology and deals with alimentary disturbances. The first chapter deals with the nutrition of the normal infant. The second and third discuss the common digestive disorders and the fourth and fifth vitamin deficiency. The last two chapters are interesting and are devoted to anemias caused by nutrition, and nutrition in arthritis. It is refreshing to see such importance put on a proper diet as a prophylaxis against these more unusual conditions. The book is bound in paper, but the printing is good. It should be of interest to the clinician for its broad point of view, and to the student for its conciseness.
