This booklet, in German, is intended for students and practicing physicians as a guide in the clinical examinations of the blood. It contains directions for making the usual cell counts and the stained preparations of the blood. It gives the normal conditions and describes the abnormal. Anemia and Leukemia are described, and with the latter are considered a variety of diseases in which there is an enlargement of the lymph nodes. Various parasitic diseases of the blood, certain pathologic conditions of the spleen, differential diagnosis, and therapeutic measures in some of the diseases are discussed. A summary concludes the volume.
The information obtained will scarcely compensate those who have little knowledge of German for their difficulty in reading the book; certain American laboratory texts contain in a more accessible form all of the material presented in this work.
