This book, in Spanish, is an interesting discussion both from the physiologic and from the clinical standpoint on the subject of water and mineral balance in children. Early chapters deal with the normal balance and are followed by a discussion of pathologic conditions in which dehydration results. The text is fully explained by numerous tables and graphic illustrations. An appendix has been added, which contains the indications and procedures for use of plasma in these conditions. The bibliography is excellent and well chosen.
