This is a clinical survey of diseases of old age. Pulmonary tuberculosis is more frequent than might be supposed and occurs oftener in women than in men; bronchopneumonia as a sequel to various debilitating conditions is fully described; the gravity of erysipelas, septicemias and the common cold are stressed. Cerebral and circulatory disturbances from arteriosclerotic changes are adequately discussed. Malignant conditions, although frequent in older people, decrease in their incidence with increasing age.
