This book is based on the author's wide experience in the surgical wards of the hospitals of Valparaiso, especially during the last twelve years. Although the clinical diagnosis should prevail over the roentgen, the proper knowledge of roentgenology is paramount for the exact interpretation of the roentgenograms. The majority of roentgenograms in the book are of patients observed by the author. The book is divided into eight chapters, on surgical diseases of (1) the cranium and cranial cavity, (2) the face and mouth, (3) the neck, (4) the thorax, (5) the abdomen, (6) the urogenital organs, (7) the spine, bone marrow and pelvis and (8) the extremities. The fields covered in the different chapters include: 1. Cranial trauma with or without cerebral complications, cranial trauma in the newborn, congenital and other tumors, hydrocephalus, malformations, tumors, epilepsy, exophthalmos, pathology of the cerebral nerves, craniocerebral topography, osteitis and inflammation of the brain
