Proceeding from definition, through historical considerations, embryology, morbid anatomy, etiopathogenesis, symptomatology, diagnosis, therapy and sequelae, the author gives a well rounded, objective presentation of the congenital malformations associated with fissures of the vertebrae. Personal observations on sixty-five patients are reported in detail, accompanied by numerous reproductions of photographs, drawings and charts. Although presenting little that is startling, the work is of value as a summary in the Italian language of the information to date. The bibliography is exhaustive.
