Those who favor small books with brief discussions in outline form will find this book to their liking. The material is arranged alphabetically. The descriptions of various symptoms and syndromes, intended to serve only as clues, are concise but adequate, and the illustrations in general are well selected. Many eponymic syndromes are described. The common skin diseases and the exanthems are omitted, and there is no bibliography. By the use of cross references and the avoidance of repetition, the author has successfully restricted the size of the book and fulfilled his objective to furnish a book of clues for the correlation of certain cutaneous symptoms and systemic diseases. Also, he has managed to include his own opinion on certain problems; it is not just a cold compilation of material.
