This is a well conceived manual on the etiology and classification of the various causes of sciatica, dealing especially with the intervertebral spaces and foramens, and the pathologic processes which may affect the nerves of the lumbar region. The material is taken from the service of orthopedic surgery of the Hospital de la Santa Cruz and San Pablo in Barcelona. One hundred cases have been selected; in 60 there were lumbosacral manifestations without irradiation and in 40 with the sciatic syndrome. The illustrations consist of numerous line drawings and an appendix of about twenty-four fine illustrations of various lesions of the lumbosacral region.
