This excellent monograph by Dr. Roviralta of the Polyclinic Institute of Barcelona is the result of his lectures given at the VIII National Congress of Pediatrics. An exhaustive review of the existing literature is given of the various forms of treatment now in vogue, with the doctor's own preference. The cases illustrating these are documented in great detail, including such neglected items as reaction to hemagglutinins, plasma proteins, resistance to inoculation, and tuberculin, and such laboratory details as sedimentation rates and leucytic formula.

While written in Spanish, this is well worth reading in full by anyone interested in the subject. The roentgenograms are very illustrative, and there is an excellent bibliography.
