This is an account of the symptomatology, pathologic physiology and diagnosis of Ayerza's disease according to the author's conception of that disorder. The latter consists in a firm belief that chronic bronchopulmonary disease precedes the development of pulmonary arteriosclerosis and is the essential factor in the production of cyanosis. This thesis is defended valiantly if somewhat argumentatively. The colored plates, protocols of the author's cases, and index are excellent. The bibliography is extensive.
