Although teachers of dermatology concur in Norman Walker's dictum that "the special seats of preference" of skin eruptions "must be learnt in connection with the different diseases," every student of cutaneous diseases has profited by reading Sabouraud's "Dermatologie Topographique Régionale."
Callomon's "Lehrbuch" on "The Nonvenereal Diseases of the Genitalia" (now appearing in a revised and enlarged edition) the reviewer has found to be equally enlightening.
Intended, primarily, for the man in practice the treatise meets his differential diagnostic wants by succinct descriptions of the cutaneous lesions and of diagnostic methods; his therapeutic requirements, by copious suggestions for treatment.
Judiciously selected pictures aptly illustrate the text which, although placing the practical aspects in the foreground, also presents sufficiently detailed histologic and bacteriologic descriptions.
Only recent publications are cited. The "Hundbuch" of Jadassohn must be consulted for the older literature.
