This monograph is a comprehensive review of what was current knowledge of the dendritic cells (melanocytes, nevus cells, and Langerhans cells) of the skin at the time of writing.

Its content includes the cytology (including ultrastructures), histopathology, physiology, and biochemistry of these cells with particular reference to the melanocyte of normal and abnormal skin. The author has admirably unified and condensed this material from diverse disciplines into a readable monograph. However, it was almost unavoidable that in some sections clarity was somewhat sacrificed by the author's attempt to simplify his presentation. In spite of this handicap, the book serves as an adequate introduction to the study of the overall problems that confront the student of the dendritic cells. An extensive reference list rounds out the skeletal nature of the book.
