This is a well organized and orthodox summary of the recognized methods of treatment of tuberculosis, offered as a professorship thesis to the University of Buenos Aires. The author has classified the subtitles under the three general heads (1) treatment of the soil, (2) treatment of the bacillus, (3) treatment of the focus. Under each of the general headings there are chapters carefully divided into paragraphs, each contributing its quota necessary to complete the entire field indicated in the title. The presentation constitutes an excellent compendium relating to all the methods of treatment, non-surgical and surgical, recognized as appropriate according to present day standards.
