The first part of this volume contains a general consideration of tuberculosis. There is a good discussion of the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. Under treatment the various special procedures, such as artificial pneumothorax and intrapleural pneumonolysis, are discussed at considerable length. Various complications in pulmonary tuberculosis are considered. Nearly fifty pages is devoted to tuberculosis in children, in which the evolution of the disease is presented. Most of the illustrations are made from roentgenograms. Unfortunately, this volume does not contain a bibliography.
