The author's plan is to present typical examples of different groups of infectious diseases by way of illustrating the nature and mode of origin as well as biologic principles of treatment and prevention. Two more booklets similar to this are to appear in the course of the next two years. The diseases so far discussed are diphtheria as the example of a strictly toxic infection, pneumonia as an example of the bacteremic infections, and epidemic poliomyelitis as an example of infections caused by filtrable viruses. Symptoms and diagnosis are not included in the discussion, which deals with the fundamental pathogenic nature, the immune reactions and the biologic treatment of the three diseases. No original points of view are presented.
