The arrangement of the subject matter is similar to that of the first volume, on abdominal pain. The inherent value of this book consists not alone in the completeness of the subject, but also in clear, concise and descriptive presentation. Nothing seems to be left out. Any reader, baffled by a pain of apparently unknown origin, and in doubt as to the various causes of pain in the particular region in question, will find here a concise differential diagnosis of all causes of pain appearing in this locality. A careful history, a complete examination and discriminating use of laboratory methods are no more important than a thorough analysis of the results of these examinations. The translation is fairly well made, although at times a happier selection of words could have been made. The book can be recommended as a valuable aid to the student and to the practitioner.
