This volume is largely compiled from a number of articles, written for various journals. The respiratory affections of children are taken up in a somewhat different manner from that which is usual in America.
The first chapters are on the upper respiratory troubles of scarlet fever and measles. The next chapter is on enlargement of the peribronchial glands. Pneumonias of various types are considered, as well as the inflammations of the pleura. The respiratory complications of various infectious diseases are also taken up in detail, and tuberculosis is considered from several standpoints. The book ends with a consideration of asthma both from a clinical and a therapeutic standpoint.
Each chapter is well illustrated by quotation of cases. There are many roentgen-ray pictures in the book to illustrate these cases. On the whole, the monograph should be a valuable addition to the clinical knowledge of respiratory affections in children.
