ABSTRACT

Fourteen years have elapsed since the third edition of this standard British textbook on pediatrics. Each of the contributors (two of whom are American) is an authority on the subject matter of the chapter he has contributed. The book has been completely revised. Part I consists of general considerations, with chapters on heredity, growth and development, drugs in infancy and childhood, clinical pathology, practical procedures, anesthetics and feeding of infants and children. Part II covers diseases of children, including the newly-born baby, diseases of nutrition, ductless glands, alimentary tract, respiratory system, tuberculosis and allergy.

The book must have been completed soon after the close of the war, as it contains no reference to streptomycin or to the newer surgery of congenital heart diseases. "Benadryl" and "pyribenzamine" are not mentioned in the treatment of allergic diseases. In the chapter on allergy, for seasonal hay fever desensitization injections are begun in January
