Summary

Originally published in 1951, this book by Dr. Sidney V. Haas, who introduced banana feeding in the therapy of celiac disease, and his son, Dr. Merrill P. Haas, represents the most extensive report published at the time on the subject.

The first two-thirds of the book deal with the historical aspects of the problem, the various theories of etiology, and the methods of treatment proposed by different workers in the field.

The final part of the book is devoted to the authors’ own experience and opinions, with comparisons of therapeutic results and prognosis on the basis of differences in dietary management.

“[T]he subject is treated comprehensively and objectively. The writers’ style is clear and direct, and their approach to controversial aspects of the problems of celiac disease is fair and judicious.”—JAMA Internal Medicine, January 1952
