This book represents a very thorough study of birth injuries in the leading institution of this country for the care of mentally defective individuals. It is a timely report because of the ever apparent results of poorly handled obstetrical cases. As is pointed out in the preface: "The limitations of professional information and skill . . . render both diagnosis and treatment experimental, no matter from what angle the patient was considered. The best medical judgments describe the condition as Little's Disease, and offered no hope of amelioration."
This book thoroughly reviews the literature on the subject of birth accidents
