This monograph by the celebrated Swiss pediatrician is well worth the perusal of any one who is interested in athyreosis and hypothyreosis in childhood. He has had a vast amount of experience with this type of condition and especially with endemic cretinism. It is interesting to note that excellent results are being obtained in Switzerland by the use of iodized salt, even in this form of cretinism, which speaks volumes for the value of this preventive measure. Altogether, this is a worth while monograph.
