This is the volume on pediatrics of the "Ars Medici" series. Stransky has accomplished the seemingly impossible task of crowding a readable and full textbook of pediatrics into two hundred and eighty-three pages. It is complete and covers everything, even having a chapter on diagnostic and laboratory technic. This is accomplished by many tables and outlines, and obviously the excess matter is cut to a minimum. For the student or practitioner who reads German, I doubt whether a more concise but complete work on pediatrics can be found.
