This concise monograph contains an excellent review of the literature pertaining to premature and weak infants, which deals with vital statistics, physical and mental growth and development, biologic chemistry and the more frequently encountered pathologic conditions.

From the standpoint of the practitioner, it is lacking in details concerning the care of the infants.

This monograph is recommended to those especially interested in a review of the literature.
