A COMMENT ON OUR MATERIA MEDICA

By Dr. Lewis E. Rauterberg. There is no curable disorder in the human body nor any curable invisible morbid change that does not make itself known as disease by signs and symptoms, and hence by removing the entire complex of perceptible signs and disturbances, the disease itself is canceled.

SOME PECULIAR CASES OF INFLUENZA PNEUMONIA
