This brief report describes the cases of 104 patients who had acute Bright's disease in childhood, 68 of whom were alive at the time of the report. The clinical histories are in outline form. Autopsy results in 29 cases are restricted frequently to gross diagnoses. The purpose of the book is stated to be the encouragement of students and practitioners in observation record and assessment of interesting cases. The book will be of interest to those especially concerned with kidney diseases. There seems to be a lack of clinical and pathological correlations.
