It would be entirely impossible in the short space allotted to cover comprehensively the entire treatment of a disease on which volumes have been written. I shall therefore not even endeavor to mention a large number of means and measures of undoubted utility which in the hands of various practitioners have proved of unquestionable benefit; but shall confine my remarks to a single method which has successfully stood the test of trial. I shall try to point out a series of simple and practical procedures such as are available in any climate or locality, attempting at the same time to lay emphasis on certain simple details, the oversight of which has often proved the stumbling block of the general practitioner, and I shall of necessity be forced to pass perfunctorily over certain subjects, in order to be sufficiently brief.

The only treatment which has satisfactorily stood the test of time and of investigation, is that which with various modifications, is now in vogue in the various sanatoria throughout the world.
