Hygiene and Diseases of Warm Climates. Andrew Davidson, M.D., Illustrated with engravings and full-page plates. Edinburgh and London: Young J. Pentland. 1893.

Extract

This valuable work consists of 24 chapters, each of which is written by one well acquainted with the subject. Two of them are written by the learned editor. Dealing with the diseases of warm climates, many of the maladies described are unfamiliar to practitioners in Britain, and none of them have special interest to the readers of this Journal save the chapter on goitre by Francis N. Macnamara, M.D. This paper gives a connected account of the prevalence and character of this affection in India, and the conditions under which it occurs. Goitre is principally met with in Northern India at the foot of the Himalayas, in the Delta of the Ganges, in the mud flats of Assam, and in the district of Multan. Dr. Macnamara tells us of places in which the endemic cause of goitre is so intense that a short residence often causes it to appear amongst the troops. Two stations are mentioned in Upper Assam where a three months' residence insures a well-marked goitre.
