Excerpt from The Year Book of Pediatrics, Vol. 7
A complete abstract of all the pediatric literature of the year would be impossible in the space allotted to this department, nor would it be desirable to abstract all of it, some of it dealing with speculative problems concerning the infant's metabolism, and having as yet merely a theo retie importance. It has been the endeavor of the Editor to make a judicious selection of the literature, and to bring out what seemed to him the important work of the year which has a value from the standpoint of bedside medi cine. The diligent investigations which have been car ried on in the domain of infectious diseases have been carefully considered, with particular reference to scarlet fever and diphtheria. The serum therapy of scarlet fever, which has been announced during the past year, is still in its experimental stage, and judgment on its value must be reserved until more clinical tests of its efficacy have been made.
