The author discusses the place of syphilis in the etiology of diseases of the thyroid gland, asthma, angioneurotic edema, purpura, blanching and congestion of the extremities, claudication, abdominal adhesions, nervous dysphagia and pes cavus in a most unconvincing manner. It would seem that the author is unduly and unjustifiably impressed with the part that syphilis plays in the cause of certain clinical entities. Obviously the book is not recommended.
