This book achieves with effectiveness and simplicity its broad purpose, which is to depict and correlate the physiological and clinical significance of the lymphatic system in mammals, chiefly man. The subject matter by chapters (of which there are nine) is as follows: the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic apparatus; the permeability of blood capillaries and its relation to lymph formation; the permeability of lymphatics; lymph flow and lymph pressure; chemical composition and physical characteristics of lymph; biological significance of lymphoid tissue; cell content of lymph; the lymphocyte; and finally, practical considerations. On the whole, the perspective is a physiological and experimental one, although the last chapter is devoted entirely to clinical consideration, and in certain other chapters the clinical and physiological phases are interwoven. The many controversial aspects which are necessarily encountered in this particular subject are given comprehensive treatment, with liberal consideration of views of different schools of thought.
