This is an excellent book which fills a long-standing need. Dr. Glaser has written many articles on various phases of pediatric allergy that have done much to clarify this subject. Now he has produced a complete text covering all of the phases of pediatric allergy. Up to date discussions are given regarding all phasis of diagnosis and therapy including chapters on antihistamines and steroids. The clinical diagnosis is completely discussed with careful differential diagnostic procedures. The techniques of skin testing are described in detail and further amplified by photographs. One of the outstanding features of the book is the collection of color photographs of various allergic skin conditions. In summary, this text is recommended without reservation to all who treat children and come into contact with this common problem of the allergic child.
