The reason for naming venereal diseases with the new appellative of "intersexual" is not given by the author.
The book is well printed on good paper, and the photographs are excellent. The colored plates are poor.
The first 300 pages are devoted to syphilis. The subject is thoroughly treated in a conservative way. Serologic tests are studied under the heading of "Hematic Syphilis." There are several chapters devoted to visceral syphilis. Chancroid and gonorrhea are given about 100 pages.
Other venereal diseases studied are balanoposthitis, lymphcgranulomatosis inguinalis, granuloma pudenda, ulcus vulva acutum and venereal serpiginous ulcer.
Condyloma acuminatum, genital herpes, molluscum contagiosum, pityriasis, scabies and pyoderma are also considered under the name of "paravenereal diseases."
The book is a good one and brings the subjects treated up to date.
