This is the most comprehensive book which has appeared on pediatric urology in many years. The author's long interest in children's urinary diseases, coupled with voluminous material, has made such a volume possible. The average urological practice does not yield the experience which the author possesses.

Approximately one-sixth of the book is devoted to examination and diagnosis. Noteworthy are normal values of fluid balance at various ages of infancy and childhood. Also included is an excellent exposition of the many recent additions in diagnostic procedures. New type cystoscopes are reviewed. Many excellent reproductions of urograms are used to demonstrate the nature of the various types of uropathy.
