The fact that a second edition of by Krugman and Ward has appeared within two years of the first testifies to its popularity as well as to the rapidity with which new information is becoming available on the subject of infectious diseases.

The book should be of interest to all who have occasion to treat children with acute infections. The chapters on recently elucidated diseases, such as the adenoviral infections, the enteroviral infections, viral hepatitis (infectious hepatitis, serum hepatitis) and acute respiratory infections in general, are particularly welcome and outstandingly good, since the authors of the book have themselves contributed notably to our knowledge in these fields. Excellent also are the chapters on some of the “old favorites” such as chickenpox, measles, mumps, and streptococcal infections including scarlet fever. They are replete with simple diagrammatic charts and illustrations useful to the medical student, as well as results and discussion of newer investigations.
