Although the authors do not refer to the art of medicine, it is obvious that they are its successful practitioners. They cite the histories and examinations of many patients and are explicit in the details of their management. Insofar as they report that the allergic reaction is favorably influenced and that the symptoms of pathophysiology abate, they regard their psychosomatic practice as successful.
