The book describes the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the mouth and the esophagus, such as aphthous stomatitis, esophageal disorders, and cancer of the esophagus. The text also discusses the types, etiology, symptoms, diagnosis, complications, and treatment of hiatus hernia. Peptic ulcer is tackled with regard to the causes, association to blood group, influence of hormones, geographical incidence, prognosis, and treatment. The book then tackles the conditions associated with peptic ulcer; gastric operations and their metabolic sequelae; and the problems of gastritis and other local conditions. The text further discusses the environmental causes, local factors, symptoms, signs, diagnosis, and surgery of gastric cancer and the diagnosis and prognosis of gastrointestinal hemorrhage. Problems associated with dyspepsia; diseases of the gall bladder and the pancreas; various gastrointestinal problems; and rare gastrointestinal disorders are also explained. The book also describes Crohn's disease, disorders of the colon, as well as gastrointestinal tract involvement in some systemic diseases.
