ABSTRACT

This book should prove interesting reading to the average medical officer and even to the physician in private practice. It consists of twenty-nine chapters, of which seventeen directly or indirectly concern the central nervous system, great emphasis being placed on the control of disorders of the mind such as neuroses and hysteria. While the cited experiences seem to date mostly to the first world war, the principles are mostly still valid and the reader will gain considerable information from the chapters relating to hysteria, disorders of speech and functional disorders. Other chapters concern trench fever, typhus, typhoid and paratyphoid fevers, dysentery, "epidemic jaundice," malaria, meningococcic fever, diphtheria, tetanus, war nephritis, skin disease in war and gas poisoning. Some of these chapters are not quite up to date concerning treatment; for example, no mention is made of DDT in the control of typhus, of succinylsulfathiazole in the control of bacillary dysentery
