Those who deal with families with sickle cell disease will want to know about this little 13-page booklet designed to tell parents what they should know about the disease. Written in question-and-answer style, it is in its second edition, which must indicate that it serves a useful purpose. Dr. Scott tells us that the booklets have never been sold, but that he would be glad to furnish copies in small quantities to interested physicians. If you are as interested in the total care of these patients and their families as you are of patients with other long-term illness, you will probably want to ask him for a copy and consider using it. Address requests to Roland B. Scott, M.D., Chief Pediatrician, Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Freedmen's Hospital, Sixth and Bryant Sts., NW, Washington 1, D.C.
