Abstract

This is a complete monograph on leprosy. In 850 closely but well printed pages it presents in separate chapters the history of leprosy, its geographical distribution, bacteriology and alleged cultivation of the lepra bacillus, inoculation of animals, of men, serology, immunity and allergy. Eighty pages are then devoted to etiology and a discussion of how infection in man occurs. This is followed by a clinical description of leprosy in all its various manifestations embellished with excellent photographs of cases. The following chapters on pathology are also illustrated with colored plates. Prophylaxis follows including a discussion on isolation, and a very complete chapter on the various methods of treatment concludes the work. An article by K. Gron on leprosy in literature and art is included.

The method followed has been to summarize the work of all previous investigators followed by the author's opinion briefly expressed.
