Another small book by Dr. Burnett - dealing with fevers and blood poisoning cases with special reference to the use of Pyrogenium as the remedy. A valuable commentary on the utility of Pyrogenium in septic fevers & it's comparison with the other commonly indicated remedies. Burnett has included detailed case notes and gives a history of how and why he came to experiment with Pyrogenium, firstly on himself and then on patients -a fascinating read.
