This volume contains a compilation of procedures in the clinical practice of allergy. Pediatricians are sufficiently well versed in the various cutaneous tests and are familiar with the antigens used to establish immunity against the common infectious diseases. The volume can hardly appeal to those who have most of the subject matter at their finger tips, but it would be of value to the busy general practitioner, who has to thumb through many leaflets to find what he wants. However, the book will have to be revised frequently to keep it up to date. For the pediatrician, most systems of pediatrics are better references.
