This book on congenital syphilis is one of the L'Expansion Scientifique Française series and keeps up the standard set by former volumes. The first chapter deals with the conditions necessary for the transmission of congenital syphilis, and the two following chapters deal with the symptoms in the infant and older child. The diagnosis is well discussed, including an excellent description of the roentgen findings, of which there are many good illustrations. Nothing is said of the Kahn reaction. The treatment is well outlined and is brought thoroughly up to date, the intraperitoneal administration of neoarsphenamine, for example, being discussed. This book is a compact and well organized discussion of congenital syphilis and is well worth reading.
