This book is another of the series on infantile pathology published under the direction of Professors Nobécourt and Cruchet. The author is professor of pediatrics at the University of Lausanne. The book is interesting and well written. Infantile tuberculosis is taken up as to etiology, pathology, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. He considers the triad of treatment to be rest, air and diet. Actinotherapy, therapeutics and pneumothorax are discussed. Under prophylaxis, he discusses the pro and con of B C G vaccination fairly, and admits that in rare instances it may not be without danger.
