ABSTRACT

This book is one of a series on practical medicine. It is well arranged and gives a good outline of the European ideas concerning congenital syphilis. The frequency is stated as between 10 and 40 per cent. Practically the entire book is taken up with symptoms of congenital syphilis, and the authors' idea is that it can simulate almost every disease in children. Diagnosis is made by physical findings and probability. The only laboratory methods used are the blood count for anemia and leukopenia and the Bordet-Wassermann reaction of the blood or the spinal fluid. Mention is not made of the Kahn test or of roentgenograms. The treatment advocated is by mercurials and iodides by mouth. Arsenicals are mentioned and are also advocated, to be given by mouth. Nothing is said of bismuth or of intravenous, intramuscular or intraperitoneal therapy. This book is interesting if viewed from the French point
