This book presents a subject to which the author has devoted more than the usual amount of study. A preliminary chapter on the pathology, symptoms, etc., is followed by four chapters on treatment, one on muscle training, and a final chapter on the author's spring balance muscle test. In his discussion of the serum treatment, Dr. Lovett limits himself to the use of convalescent serum, and makes no mention of the serums made by Rosenow and Nuzum from the streptococci that they found in this disease. The book is almost wholly orthopedic in character, discussing the various measures for restoring function to the disabled parts.
