This textbook is intended primarily for general practitioners. It does not discuss therefore such conditions as peritonitis or any other septic condition or disease affecting the abdominal or pelvic organs. After a few introductory chapters dealing with anesthesia, preparation for operation, treatment of wounds, and general treatment of the patient with an infectious process, the book is devoted to some of the more important septic conditions affecting the various parts of the body. Among these are erysipelas, tetanus, furuncle, carbuncle, empyema, osteomyelitis, infections of the hands and perinephric and subphrenic abscess. The book is far from being all inclusive.

The book is adequately and even beautifully illustrated, with excellent reproductions of photographs and drawings, some of them in color. It is practical and fulfils the purpose
