This popular textbook has been extensively revised and brought up to date without increase of size. Many sections include references as late as 1953. Excellent illustrations have been added or put in place of older ones. Those on bone age and retrolental fibroplasia are particularly noteworthy. In connection with this disease, the modern practice of avoidance of excessive oxygen administration and the necessity of prescription of oxygen in percentage rather than rate of flow are to be noted. The section on diabetes is very practical and moderate. It includes use of mixed NPH-regular insulins and recommends mild control of diet
