PREFACE TO THE THIRD EDITION.
I HAVE carefully revised this book for the third edition, and have made a few additions which have been rendered necessary by the increase of our knowledge of gynecology.
I am indebted to Dr. H. D. Beyea for valuable assistance in the preparation of this edition.

I HAVE written this book for the medical student. I have attempted to present the best teaching of modern gynecology, untrammelled by antiquated theories or methods of treatment. I have, in most instances, recommended but one plan of treatment for each disease, hoping in this way to avoid confusing the student or the physician who consults the book for practical guidance. I have, as a rule, omitted all facts of anatomy, physiology, and pathology which may be found in the general text-books upon these subjects. Such facts have been mentioned in detail only when it seemed important for the elucidation of the subject, or when there were certain points in the pathology that were peculiar to the diseases under consideration. I am indebted to Dr. H. D. Beyea for several pathological drawings, and to Dr. W'm. R. Nicholson for the preparation of the Index.
