This book is the outgrowth of articles published in such periodicals as the British Journal of Radiology, the Journal of Anatomy and the Lancet. Those who have read the original articles will be glad to see them in book form. The author, who is an authority on the subject, offers a wealth of material in presentable form. The book is divided into three parts, on lines of arrested growth in the long bones in childhood, bone growth with special reference to deficiency diseases, and significance of the fundamental processes of growth and repair in skeletal disease. First are recorded clinical and experimental researches on the growth of bone. In the first part the researches are based on a study of arrested growth in disease and in experimental animals. The author indicates the application of the results of this study to the elucidation of certain clinical facts in diseases of children
