This book should contribute to a better understanding of scleroderma and other connective tissue diseases. It does, but there are serious faults.
Much of the volume is written in French. These contributions are excellent, but for those who do not read French they are of little value.
Since the papers were presented at a symposium by many authors, unevenness is present. Some papers are cursory reviews, others exhaustive. For the most part, the nondermatologic symptoms and findings of scleroderma are especially well delineated with several new findings of biologic interest.
This volume is recommended to the dermatologist and internist who are interested in the group of connective tissue diseases.
