This little book is a simple attempt to describe briefly the differential diagnosis and principal aspects of treatment of so-called rheumatism, including rheumatic fever, fibrositis, arthritis and gout. There is possibly some oversimplification in presentation, and the list of useful methods of treatment, especially for rheumatoid arthritis, would require careful selection for the individual patient. The general practitioner whose knowledge of these diseases is extremely fragmentary would find this volume helpful, but it can scarcely be considered comparable to some of the other more complete and more scientific recent books on or reviews of the subject.
