Gonococcal Infection in the Male. For Students and Practitioners.

Gonococcal Infection in the Male. For Students and Practitioners. This book unnecessarily increases the flood of publications on gonorrhea that have lately inundated the market of medical books.

Abstract

This book unnecessarily increases the flood of publications on gonorrhea that have lately inundated the market of medical books. The author's ambition seems to reach rather for accumulating numerous items than for emphasizing the leading points and sorting the chaff from the wheat. The looseness in presenting definitions and in discussing pathologic conditions is another disagreeable feature. Epididymitis and orchitis, for instance, should certainly not be confused in a specialistic publication. Inflammation of the acini of the ureteral glands may hardly be defined as "abscesses being such a typical feature of gonorrheal urethritis," as the author asserts. Obsolete instruments, as air dilating urethroscopes and Ultzman's irrigating catheter, are extensively described and illustrated, while an instrument as indispensable to the urologist as Guyon's capillary catheter is not even mentioned. In his therapeutic suggestions, the author certainly will encounter opposition among American urologists, for instance, when he advocates in acute anterior urethritis
