Dr. Castellano has written a book on inheritance, normal and pathologic, in man. In the first part of the book he discusses and illustrates the work that has been done in recent years on the mechanism of heredity. He shows how genes work. In the second portion he presents much information with regard to pathologic inheritances in man. He is particularly interested in the inheritances of twins, of consanguineous marriages, of diseases of the nervous system, of alcoholism, of syphilis, of tuberculosis, of mental troubles, of diseases of the skin and of the eyes, ears and blood, cancers, tumors, arteriosclerosis, hypertension and of the endocrines. He has sections on the nephropathies, diabetes, gout, alkaptonuria, cystinuria and porphyruria. It is an excellent book for any Spanish speaking physician who would like to get up to date on what is being done in the field of pathologic inheritance.
