Fourth Edition  The American Medical Association announces the publication of the Fourth Edition of "Standard Nomenclature of Diseases and Operations." Changes in the new edition have been as much as possible kept to a minimum. Nevertheless, advancing knowledge has made necessary a complete revision of the section on the psychobiologic unit, diseases of the hemic and lymphatic systems, and tumor etiology. A completely new feature of this edition is the inclusion of code numbers of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases, Injuries, and Causes of Death, parenthetically in the body of the book, and a cross reference of International and Standard code numbers as an appendix. The new edition is being published for the Association by The Blakiston Company (Philadelphia) and will be available Jan. 2, 1952.
