Editor Huber and eight collaborators present a review of contemporary thought on parkinsonism, Wilson's disease, Huntington's disease, and Sydenham's chorea. Discussions are oriented primarily toward medical therapy. Nashold offers a most lucid discussion of current thought regarding surgical treatment of parkinsonism.

The second symposium in this book revolves around a discussion of acquired hemorrhagic disorders. It is edited by Ratnoff with five contributors. There is great emphasis on fibrinolytic disorders and defibrination syndromes. Hardesty has contributed an excellent chapter on nonthrombocytopenic purpuras.

This March 1968 edition maintains the remarkable quality that has come to characterize the Modern Treatment monograph series.
