Eight lectures delivered by Dr. Condorelli to his students make the content of the book. The cases chosen for discussion are of some interest, but some daring diagnoses such as that of pulmonic stenosis and patency of the ductus and that of coarctation of the aorta and patency of the ductus leave the reader perplexed on their exactness, in the absence of surgical or postmortem control and of more complete clinical work-up. The writing is redundant and verbose, and the frequent digressions from the case into entirely unrelated subjects make the presentation of material rather confused. The editorial form is commendable.
