Allergy: Its Practical Application

This small book is intended to furnish students and practitioners of medicine practical aid in the care of patients suffering from asthma, hay fever and other allergic conditions. In this aim the author has succeeded to a considerable extent. The chapter on house dust and that relating to allergy of the skin are good. The chapter on immunology is brief and there is an almost complete absence of directions regarding dosages used in hyposensitization. The necessity of correlating clinical observations with skin tests is well emphasized. The book unfortunately has some serious defects. The author tends to be dogmatic in several instances; e. g., on page 66 "delayed reactions are of no importance." Other errors appear; e. g., on page 76 Scheppegrell is given credit for first attempting a pollen survey (1917), whereas Blackley's work preceded this some fifty years. On page 81, tree pollen is not mentioned at all
