Landau and Held thoroughly present the subject of gastric syphilis in this monograph. They include not only organic gastric disease but functional gastric disturbances due to extragastric syphilis. The monograph includes a discussion of the incidence, pathology, classification and treatment of the disease, the disturbances in the secretory function of the stomach as a result of syphilis and the difficulties encountered in making a differential diagnosis of gastric syphilis. It includes also a good bibliography, mostly of French and German works and many x-ray plates.
Nothing particularly new is added to the subject; however, the monograph is a good clinical discussion of gastric syphilis.
