This excellent monograph on rickets contains the usual studies of age, symptoms, clinical signs and prognosis, with observations on the chemistry of calcium and phosphorus. It includes a chapter on rickets in premature infants and a chapter on the action of antirachitic remedies. The illustrations and diagrams are well chosen, and the bibliography is complete.
