Most books on therapy, after briefly presenting symptoms and diagnosis, offer several methods suitable for the treatment of each condition described. In this book, only enough information concerning the etiology and pathology of the various diseases is given to explain the rationale on which the treatment is based. A collection of many different methods of treatment is not presented, but rather only those methods which the author has selected because he believes them to be the best and most reliable. The reader is not left any choice as to what therapeutic procedure he should adopt. The book covers the disorders of the first five years of life. The complete index will enable the reader to find quickly the information he requires. The prescriptions appended also will be found useful. The treatment methods are practical and, in most instances, clearly presented in an amply detailed manner.
