This year's literature is characterized by interesting advances in knowledge of the pathogenesis and pathology of allergy, new advances in knowledge of the etiology and pathogenesis of eczema and improvements in methods of treatment.


It is difficult in an article of this scope to take up the theoretical intricacies of the interesting advances which are being made in the study of the pathogenesis of allergy.
