This monograph is the reproduction of a review which appeared in a recent number of the Ergebnisse der inneren Medizin und Kinderheilkunde, vol. 36. It is a careful consideration of the subject by one who for many years has been actively engaged in its investigation, both in the laboratory and in the clinic. It considers not only the prophylactic and curative treatment for rickets and tetany, but also its diagnosis, etiology and pathogenesis. The bibliography is exceptionally full, including more than 1,500 references. The monograph can be recommended to all who wish to read or refer to an account that comprises the newer points of view of rickets and tetany. The indications for direct and indirect irradiation therapy are carefully outlined, and the question of "hypervitaminosis" is adequately discussed.
