As pointed out in the preface, the exigencies of war turned the attention of pathologists particularly to the study of infectious diseases, those caused by animal parasites, and the effects of wounds, poisonous gases and malnutrition. In this edition, the author has attempted to follow these advances by the insertion of paragraphs summarizing new work or by rewriting whole chapters. Particular attention has been given to the sections on shock, acid-base equilibrium, hydrocephalus, immunity in tuberculosis, meningococcal infections, pneumonia after measles, influenza, cholera and leprosy. The illustrations have been modified and new ones inserted. Following each chapter is a table of references to the literature, several references to publications issued during 1919, assuring the reader that the publication is up to date. The extent of revision may be estimated by the fact that the first edition contained 1,085 pages while the present edition contains 1,155.
