Professor Husler has revised and edited this edition somewhat after the plan followed by the editors of Osler's "Practice of Medicine." The volume is in three parts. The first is a survey of the entire field of pediatrics, including diseases of the newborn and infections in the growing child. The second part deals with diagnosis and treatment from the technical viewpoint. Part 3 concerns methods of feeding, including diets auxiliary to milk. There are 155 pages devoted to alphabetic listing of drugs and discussions of poisoning. Special attention is given to congenital defects in the heart and circulatory system, to virus pneumonias, and to the use of antibiotics, including contraindications. This comprehensive book will be useful to general practitioners who read German.
