The author of this short German monograph (262 pages) has recorded a great many facts and clinical observations on "Dermatology of the Oral Cavity and Adjacent Areas."

Although the subject matter is necessarily brief, each subject is comprehensively covered. In the 15 chapters on diseases of the mouth he discusses the anatomy and physiology; malformations and aberrations; specific and nonspecific infections; viral and mycotic infections; exanthems, bullous, eczematous, and other dermatological diseases; connective tissue diseases; metabolic and pigmentary diseases, and benign and malignant tumors. The final chapter discusses the relationship of diseases of the oral cavity acting as a mirror of systemic disease.

In spite of its conciseness, this book should prove helpful to the medical student, general practitioner, or any specialist who desires a knowledge of the oral cavity.
