Programs to reduce infant mortality must take into account particularly the prevention of neonatal deaths. Studies thus far published indicate clearly that the factors responsible for neonatal deaths in many instances also contribute to fetal mortality. This book, which is a survey of the incidence, etiology and anatomic manifestations of the conditions producing death of the fetus in utero and the infant in the early days of life, should aid materially all those who are interested in the prevention of fetal and neonatal deaths. It contains descriptive material relative to the technic of necropsy of the fetus and newborn infant, statistics, means of prevention and particulars of investigations. The book is excellently prepared and may be highly recommended to all those interested in this field.
