Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...of the head, neck, and chest. His opening remarks relate to simple and exophthalmic goitre, upon which much has been written during the past year, and very little has been added to our knowledge of the subject. The various theories of hyper-and hypothyroidization, together with the treatments and operations based upon these theories, are discussed. The importance of medical treatment, persistent and thorough, in exophthalmic goitre is referred to. We are left somewhat in doubt as to the value of various surgical measures employed in the treatment of this disease. In the surgery of the mouth reference is made to Lydston's new method of operating for salivary fistula, Ferguson's operation for the closure of harelip, and the plastic methods employed in filling the defect caused by a sinking of the bridge of the nose. F. A. Packard contributes the article on infectious diseases, including pneumonia, croupous pneumonia, and influenza. He refers to the labors of Westphal, Wassermann, and Malkoff, who have succeeded in identifying a microorganism which seems to be the chief agent in the production of acute articular rheumatism. Weber's observations on the occasional epidemic character of pneumonia are referred to. In the etiology of scarlet fever an excellent resume has been given of the work done by Class in identifying the germ of this disease. In typhoid fever the serum method of diagnosis, in the application of which there seems to be no unanimity of opinion, occupies the forefront of the discussion. In this disease the trend is in favor of departure from a strictly milk diet. In Medicine, editorially, we have referred to this subject, stating that a milk diet was in effect a solid diet, because the milk was coagulated in the stomach. Wilson more
