It seems probable that if cortisone and corticotrophin (ACTH) had never become available this conference on connective tissues would not have been held. For practicing physicians, therefore, the section on the effect of corticotrophin and cortisone on connective tissues seems most important in view of the present great interest in collagen disorders. The various subjects are dealt with informally, the presentation being followed by round-table discussions which, in some cases, may be a little obscure. However, the Macy Foundation is to be thanked for making this material available.
