Die Tuberkulose des Kindes: Ein Lehrbuch aus der Kinderheilstätte Wangen im Allgäu

ABSTRACT

This German textbook on tuberculosis in children contains sections describing the pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary lesions at considerable length. Shorter sections describe the various forms of extrapulmonary tuberculosis.

The clinical course and variations of primary and reinfection lesions in children are given in great detail. The material is illustrated with reproductions of many roentgenograms. Discussion of diagnosis and prognosis is sound and informative.

This book is rendered practically obsolete by the fact that it was written before the discovery of streptomycin. The authors were unable to review non-German literature after 1939. This has resulted in failure to consider recent advances in theories of pathogenesis.

This book cannot be recommended as a textbook for students or practitioners because of the shortcomings mentioned. It may be of interest to those who wish a detailed description of German pediatric tuberculosis work in the prestreptomycin era.
