This is not a treatise on the pediatric aspects of dermatology but rather a practical exposition of dermatological problems in the young. In accord with this concept, the author considers the basic aspects of dermatology with particular reference to the skin of the infant and child, a miscellany of minor or uncommon dermatoses of infants and children, and a formal classification of dermatological disorders. A valuable feature of the book is the section on therapy. The principles of treatment are outlined, and suggestions are given as to the art of dressing inflamed skin. In pages of a contrasting color, a practical formulary is annotated.

Specific dermatoses are described as to pathogenesis, clinical findings, histopathology, and treatment. The illustrations are pertinent and pointed and the charts are clear distillations of practical data. A special glossary is included for the dermatohistopathological interpretations, and another glossary for some common technical and lay words
