There is no attempt in this volume to cover the whole field of pediatrics. The authors have chosen for discussion clinical conditions which have recently been recognized or concerning which there has been significant recent progress. They are both clinicians of note and present their subjects with great understanding. The illustrations are excellent.

The chapter headings are: (1) Acrodynia, (2) Still's Disease, (3) Malignant Lymphogranulomatosis (Hodgkin's Disease), (4) Meningococcemia, (5) Lipoid Nephrosis in the Child, (6) Pyocephaly of the Infant, (7) Subacute Curable Pulmonary Edema of the Infant, (8) Dried Milk Fever, (9) The Rôle of Vitamins in Infancy, (10) Ulcer of Meckel's Diverticulum, (11) Acute Ethmoiditis in the Infant, (12) Anterior Tibial Apophysitis, (13) Primary Acute and Subacute Orchitis of Infancy, (14) The Treatment of Colon Bacillus Pyelonephritis, (15) Recent Progress in Antidiphtheritic Vaccination, (16) Modern Methods of Measles Prophylaxis and (17) The Roentgenography of the Lung in Erythema
