This is the first revision of "Zielers Grundriss" in more than fifteen years. It is a brief discussion of the field of venereal diseases including gonorrhea, syphilis, soft chancre, venereal warts and nongonorrheal infections. This edition is by Birnbaum, a pupil of Zieler's. During the intervening years since the second edition political changes in Germany have definitely established the combating of venereal diseases as a public health problem. Therefore a brief discussion of the legal aspects of these diseases has been included. In the introduction, the point that prevention is more important than treatment is stressed. It is stated that there is little excuse for the continuance of venereal disease, it is so readily recognizable and treated. A third of the book is devoted to gonorrhea, including a brief discussion of the anatomy of the urethra, bacteriology, identification of the organism by staining and culture, the complications arising with treatment
