The author states in the preface that the untimely death of his associate, Dr. Frank H. Montgomery, delayed the appearance of this edition. The work has been carefully revised and new matter added, which has necessitated the addition of 250 pages. Considerable space is devoted to diseases of the tropics. Pellagra is classed as a "tropical disease of uncertain nature." The symptoms, etiology, diagnosis and treatment are summarized briefly, and a fairly complete bibliography is given. New articles have been added on the following subjects: prurigo nodularis, several of the special forms of erythema, the "fourth disease," paraffin prothesis, osteoma and calcification of the skin, meralgia paresthetica, acrodermatitis pustulosa hiemalis, lichen spinulosus, keratolysis exfoliativa congenita, lipoma, Fordyce's disease, causalgia, leucemia and pseudoleucemia cutis, tinea ciliorum and, in particular, diseases produced by animal parasites, especially the brown-tail moth dermatitis. The book therefore is brought well up to date and will continue
