This edition is based largely, as were the previous editions, on the author's personal experiences. In many instances, case histories from his files are recorded, which adds to the practical value of the volume. For the artificially fed infant, Kerley expresses a preference for top milk mixtures. In his roentgen-ray studies of developmental abnormalities in the intestinal tract, he goes into greater detail than most works covering this field. Taken as a whole, this volume covers the diseases of infancy and childhood in a comprehensive and practical manner. Several especially practical chapters concern essentials in the care of acute illness and special diagnostic methods and therapeutic measures. The treatment of a number of conditions, such as celiac diseases, acrodynia and the care of premature infants, have apparently been slighted.
