This is an excellent study based on the literature and presenting first the embryology, anatomy, pathology and physiology of the ovaries, with few illustrations. After this portion the author goes into the chief material of the volume, which might better be entitled the functional examination of the ovaries. (The author does not include the direct physical examination of the ovaries, as the Portuguese title would suggest.) This is illuminated by detailed studies of 36 of his own cases, including a number of excellent illustrations, some colored, especially of the vaginal smear method of Papanicolaou and Shorr, which the author interprets correctly and makes much use of. In addition to an extensive bibliography which shows an appreciation of the world literature up until late in 1941 the author includes the list of his publications in this general field of gynecology.
