The authors in their foreword say that this is a specialized medical dictionary designed for all those interested in obstetrics and gynecology, the nurse, student, practitioner and specialist. In addition to the usual definitions, many subjects are treated in considerable detail with the aid of outlines and illustrations. Some data, such as an outline of infectious diseases in children, are not quite pertinent to the subject. Some common terms are absent. Ergot is defined, but ergonovine is missing. This small book may be a useful reference book, but it does not replace the standard medical dictionaries.
