Concise and well illustrated, this volume, composed of twenty-one chapters, contains many useful charts and tables. There are 203 pages devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of the various types of syphilis and 108 pages to gonorrhea and its complications.

The paper, printing and illustrations are of fine quality.
