This is the third edition. It retains the general plan of the widely used second edition but is entirely reset and brought up to date with reference to newly described diseases and methods. Description of cases has been omitted to give space to a more comprehensive discussion of diagnosis.
The volume emphasizes throughout with diagnostic and differential tables the features of the condition discussed, both clinical and laboratory. The correlation between clinical manifestations and the structural changes, as well as special etiologic factors of infection, are also discussed.
The volume is a well conceived, carefully executed text containing in not too brief form all that can be included in any single book.
