ABSTRACT

This is a new textbook on children's diseases by two of Germany's foremost pediatricians. Infant feeding and infant care in health and disease receive careful attention. As the volume is intended for the practitioner, therapy receives much attention. The chapter on "medicinal therapy" is rather extensive, including prescriptions containing rather obsolete vegetable derivatives as well as rather extensive lists of modern German pharmaceuticals; e. g., under urinary antiseptics there are included: cystopurin, hippol, myramalid, amphotropin, etc. The authors claim to have seen no benefit from tonsillectomy in cases of chronic arthritis nor do they think that bathing eczema cases with water a few times a week acts harmfully. Their antisyphilitic treatment is very good. The paucity of illustrations is the shortcoming of the volume. The one showing longitudinal sinus puncture for obtaining blood and that of injection into the temporal vein are good.
