This somewhat cumbersome title covers the substance of a lecture to Army surgeons on infections of the hands (and feet) currently being given by one of us (J. H. S.) with the tabular analytic summaries for mnemonic purposes which accompany it. The presentation is based on material which aggregated 200 cases in the senior author's practice ten years ago and has grown recently out of all bounds in the direction of the physician's (and surgeon's) hand. Since, as Ecclesiasticus has well put it, for surgeons "the handiwork of their craft is their prayer,"' and since the same authority has said that in the physician's hands is the issue of life, it appears worth while to offer a critical analysis. Such a method of analysis is, in our experience, useful in industrial medical practice, now a major defense problem, as well as in the field, the household and the medical office
