The author has outlined the chemical, experimental, physiologic, biologic and anatomopathologic data on ringworm, and has written a notable chapter on the practical therapeutics of thallium acetate in its application to the safe production of epilation in the treatment of ringworm. To those who are familiar with the difficulty of treating ringworm without epilation, this method comes as a boon. To those who have used the roentgen ray, with its inherent dangers and the subsequent mental worry, it comes as a surcease. The book is recommended because of its thoroughness, its conservatism, and its richness in practical information.
