This handsome monograph deals chiefly with the radiology and the gross microscopic lesions of bronchial tuberculosis. The first section discusses obstructive lesions associated with collapse and caseation; the second, obstructive lesions mostly associated with bronchiectasis; the third, residual lesions of obstructive infiltrations that are virtually inactive from the clinical point of view; the fourth, tuberculous bronchial lesions in the neighborhood of cavities and tuberculomas; and the fifth, bronchial changes in fibrotic and inactive lesions. In each section there is a series of case reports illustrated by roentgenograms, photographs of the gross surgical specimen, and photomicrographs of the pertinent bronchial or juxtabronchial tissues. The roentgenograms are well reproduced, and many of the gross tissue photographs are informative. It would be of some assistance to the reader if the legends for the specimens carried a notation indicating the approximate interval between the date of the accompanying roentgenogram and the date of operation.
