This is a monograph in the American Lecture Series. It is short and concise but comprehensive in its clinical approach. There is a short history of the disease. The physiology of the pancreatic and pulmonary lesions is accompanied by excellent illustrations. Then follows a well-organized discussion of the clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment. Unfortunately, recent studies such as those on the composition of sweat are not included.

This small book is beautifully printed and bound. It is 93 pages in length and contains 16 illustrations and 83 references.
