The author has adopted a rather unique scheme in this book on peritonitis in infancy. He devotes a chapter each to the primary causes of peritonitis, namely, appendicitis, pneumococcus, streptococcus, intestinal ulcers, gastric ulcers, diverticuli and tuberculosis. In these chapters the history, pathology, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment are fully discussed. At the end of each chapter are histories of illustrative cases. The work is readable, excellently illustrated and well done. There is a full bibliography on the subject.
