This book gives an excellent summary of the knowledge of the neuropathology of bone and joint diseases. The work is divided into four parts. There is first a general introduction under which is discussed the clinical occurrence of such diseases, followed by the pathology and therapy.
The second and main portion of the book discusses these diseases in the skull, vertebrae and sternum, upper limbs, pelvis, hips, thighs, knees, legs and feet. The relation of these diseases to trauma follows. The last part gives the literature. There are twenty-four pages of references. This, in itself, is evidence of the wide interest this subject has always aroused, and is also an indication of the literature consulted in the preparation of the book.
In the first part no general classification is adopted, but that of Israel is favored. Israel divided orthopedic disturbances as occurring in: (1) brain disease and (2) spinal cord
