This work gives a brief résumé of the principles of treatment to be observed in the management of the commoner diseases due to the action of micro-organisms, either directly or indirectly. Under "General Measures," the author discusses: The indications and contraindications for the application of cold baths in fevers; the importance of rest; ventilation and temperature of the sick room; principles of feeding; limitations of treatment by drugs, including the abuse of purgatives. Under "Specific Infections" are considered invasion of the body by septic micro-organisms and the various contagious and infectious diseases. There are two appendices; one deals with isolation and the other with disinfection.
