ABSTRACT

This work shows the results of years of experimental and practical study.

It not only takes up the normal structure and functions of the peritoneum but combines an extensive study through laboratory experimentation of the various phases of peritonitis with a study of its clinical behavior and treatment.

The result in peritonitis—and this statement applies to both infants and adults, inasmuch as the mechanisms involved are basically the same—depends on the timely recognition and treatment of the disease in its various stages.

The author determines the current stage by frequent abdominal puncture to determine the number and kind of bacteria relative to the number of phagocytic, polymorphonuclear leukocytes.

I believe this is Dr. Steinberg's main contribution to the literature on peritonitis, although he does take up adequately diagnosis and treatment by means of roentgen rays, along with correction of chemical changes in the body and use of chemotherapy, vaccines, antitoxins
