Thoracic surgeon Shaw has pitched this for students in their clinical years. Subjects include trauma, tuberculosis, bacterial infections, chronic fibroid pneumonitis, acquired pulmonary cysts, mycotic and parasitic infections, empyema, and congenital malformations.

Accent is on brevity; an outline format provides surprising detail on diagnosis and treatment. Brief bibliographies follow each chapter, but they are somewhat dated.
