This volume of Naegeli's differential diagnosis continues the same high quality of condensed discussion that was present in the first volume reviewed in The Journal, July 11, 1936, page 156. The present volume includes presentation of the differential diagnosis of diseases of the abdomen, lungs and pleura. Diseases of the abdomen are divided into (1) abdominal pain, (2) abdominal resistance, (3) inflammatory lesions, (4) stenoses of the gastro-intestinal tract, (5) gastric diseases (ulcer, carcinoma and gastritis), (6) constitutional disorders, (7) rare gastric disorders, (8) achylia, (9) appendicitis, (10) the peritonitides, (11) diseases of the bowel and (12) diseases of the pancreas. The discussion of gastric disease receives disproportionate emphasis (thirty-four pages); all the rest of the gastro-intestinal tract is treated in but eighteen pages. The discussion of pulmonary tuberculosis is the least impressive portion of the work. Naegeli writes well and emphatically, but one again receives the impression that the patient is considered as a loosely correlated collection of systems rather than a finely correlated whole. The volume can be recommended as a reference work revealing modern European thought and methods.
