This is another book on diagnosis in which the basis of the discussion is a symptom either subjective or objective in character. The whole subject of internal medicine is covered. The reader looks in the index for the symptom which is most prominent and is referred to the location in the text for a differential diagnosis of the subject in which he is interested. While the subject matter is fairly good, it is rather inadequate and needs further elaboration. The experience of the reviewer in trying to obtain information on several subjects does not lead him to believe that it has any more value than as a guide. For further information, other sources of information must be consulted. There are numerous illustrations and a good index, and it is well printed.
