The book is a collection of selected material for lectures to medical students. Little original material is presented, with the exception of a short and interesting article by de la Torre on the treatment of acute glomerular nephritis by the intravenous injection of procaine hydrochloride (novocaine®). Three cases of acute glomerular nephritis following scarlet fever are described in which this treatment was given with spectacular results. The rest of the articles are mostly complete and excellent reviews of recent advances of American and French medicine. An article by Bergna on Hr factor is particularly exhaustive. American readers will find of special interest a well organized monograph by Reussi on bronchopulmonary topography and its applications to the studies of the pathology and treatment of pulmonary disorders. The format of the book is excellent; the bibliographic references are complete and well arranged.
