Including the exanthemata. For the use of general practitioners and advanced studies for students.
The author's aim is to present clearly and concisely the subject of dermatology. To this end an attempt has been made to arrange the general considerations and the special diseases in logical sequence, to properly emphasize the relative importance of symptomatology, etiology, pathology, diagnosis and treatment, to present lucid and descriptive definitions, to relegate obsolete terms to their proper spheres, and to omit the many unnecessary and confusing foot-notes so characteristic of many scientific books.
The subject of treatment is a board one and is given extensive not only as regards general principals in the introductory portion of the book but also from a specific standpoint under the description of the various disease entities.
