It is rare to find in so concise a form such a complete and satisfactory discussion of the infectious diseases of childhood. The presentation of the material gives evidence of the author's wide experience and sound judgment. The diseases considered are: diphtheria, scarlet fever, measles, rubeola, the fourth disease (Dukes-Filatow), erythema infectiosum, exanthema subitum, chickenpox, smallpox, aphthous stomatitis, mumps, whooping cough, poliomyelitis, epidemic meningitis, tetanus neonatorum, erysipelas, typhoid and paratyphoid fever and the infectious diarrheas.

Two tables are included, one giving incubation periods and methods of transmission, and the other giving statistics of notifiable diseases in European countries and the United States.
