This booklet should be a companion to the "Report of the Committee on Therapeutic Procedures for Acute Infectious Diseases and on Biologicals of the American Academy of Pediatrics." There is much that never may be needed, but that which is useful is well put, succinct and authoritative. It deals with agents, methods of diagnosis, methods of transmission, methods of control of disease and other topics. The report of the American Academy of Pediatrics is mainly on therapy, and hence this volume could be considered supplementary and of value to all practitioners.
