The author's aim in writing this book was to provide a guide to physicians of the Argentine who are interested in the study of thoracic diseases and who desire to visit medical centers concerned with their treatment in the United States. With this purpose in mind, a section of the book is devoted to a review of bronchogenic tumors, clinical material acquired by Dr. Aguilar at the Barnes Hospital. The second, and last, section of the book is dedicated to observations on the general aspects of thoracic surgery in the United States, as interpreted by the author during his stay in this country.

The pathologic physiology, the diagnosis and the anatomicophysiologic basis of the surgical treatment of bronchogenic malignant growths are extensively discussed in the preliminary chapters of the first section. A clinical and surgical survey of 264 cases, with fifty-two pneumonectomies, is presented as the nucleus of this discussion
