The various nutritional disturbances and the metabolic diseases of infancy are discussed from a physiologic and psychologic standpoint. Final chapters on the principles of the care of children in Mexico are of especial interest. This book, written in Spanish, should be of interest to one wishing to learn how such problems are handled in Mexico. There is a well chosen bibliography for most of the chapters.
