This small book is, as the title states, a synopsis of the fundamentals of pulmonary tuberculosis. The elementary, practical concepts of the pathogenesis, pathology, clinical types and treatment are presented clearly and in an interesting manner. The style is forceful without being dogmatic. There are a number of appropriate roentgen-ray illustrations.
The book is recommended to the medical student as an excellent introduction to the study of pulmonary tuberculosis. It should also be of help to health officers, social service workers and laymen interested in this subject. Unfortunately no references for collateral reading are given.
