The Treatment of Diseases of the Digestive System


    THIS unpretentious little book will serve to bring before the practitioner the salient points in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the digestive tract. The dose of bismuth in many cases might be larger; useful drugs such as salol, bismuth salicylate, and ipecacuanha are not mentioned; and no precautions are detailed in the use of thymol in ankylostomiasis. Otherwise the teaching throughout seems to be sound and commonsense.
