This 30-year-old textbook has gone through 7 editions and 15 reprintings, testimony to its usefulness. The spirochaetes, protozoa and helminths infecting man are considered. The common arthropods which invade, bite, or sting man are not included. The section on technic is adequate for the usual office routine. The material is well organized and clearly presented and the extensive use of drawings add to its clarity.

For a book that is “intended for the practitioner” the inclusion of specific therapy would be of considerable value. Likewise, additional emphasis on clinical aspects of the infections, mechanisms of disease causation, and more complete coverage of the clinical laboratory findings would aid in developing a more complete picture of the infections.

This volume with its concise description of the common parasites and the diseases produced by them will be useful not only to practitioners, but also to medical students as well.
