This little book, sturdily bound, gives in alphabetic order the most important subjective and objective symptoms of illness, as well as the respective results of simple laboratory methods. There is a total array of 183 symptoms.
Here is a short example:
No. 59—Facial nerve paralysis:
Peripheral (forehead, eye, mouth involved):
Rheumatism, syphilis, diphtheria; in children frequently poliomyelitis
Diseases of the parotid gland: abscesses, tumors
Diseases of the middle ear and os petrosum
Inflammations and tumors of the base of the brain; for instance, acusticus tumor
Central (frowning possible): apoplexy, cerebral sclerosis, progressive paralysis. The arrangement of the book is clear and rather complete, in spite of its conciseness, and it should be helpful to the student and general practitioner.
