Those interested chiefly in the bacteriological and immunological aspects of scarlet fever will find in this small volume an interesting and concise account of these subjects. There are chapters devoted to the specificity of hemolytic streptococci, to allergy, to anti-bacterial and local immunity, as well as to prophylaxis, symptoms and treatment. The discussion of symptoms is too brief to be adequate and the greater part of the chapter on treatment is devoted to the use of antitoxin. Eight excellent plates are included, showing the results of skin tests and scarlatina manifestations. A valuable bibliography is appended.
