This brief classic needs little or no introduction to the English-speaking medical world. It is a reissue of a deservedly popular synopsis of acute abdominal diagnosis and should be read at some time early in the career of all medical men.
For the benefit of those who are not yet acquainted with this work, the author first deals with the principles of diagnosis, and then discusses history taking and the physical examination. He then deals with specific conditions in turn—appendicitis, perforated peptic ulcers, acute pancreatitis, acute intestinal obstruction, intussusception, cancer of the large bowel, volvulus, strangulated hernia, ectopic gestation, cholecystitis
