The close relationship between affections of the mouth, especially of the teeth and gums, and those of the rest of the body has been known for a long time. Only too frequently are the teeth made to suffer for woes attributed to them when the cause lies elsewhere. A clear understanding of what this relationship consists, what the limitations of dental practice are, and under what conditions dental aid is required would be a great boon to mankind. What is required by the physician is a clear-cut description of oral complications he may encounter in practice, and by the dentist, when to call medical aid. The authors have tried to meet this requirement, but unfortunately have put this information in two bulky volumes. One cannot criticize unfavorably the results of their labor. The whole domain of medicine is covered: internal medicine, pediatrics, rhinology, otology, laryngology, obstetrics and gynecology, dermatology, syphilis
