This volume, by an ophthalmologist and a dermatologist, is an important Italian publication, showing the close relation of these two branches of medicine. The authors did not limit their observations to the diseases of the skin surrounding the eye, but made a complete clinical and pathologic study of generalized diseases of the skin affecting the interior of the eye. The volume, of 410 pages, is divided into sixteen chapters, including "Epithelial Dystrophies," "Allergic Dermatoses," "Dermatoses Due to Parasites," "Infection and Avitaminoses," "Precancerous Lesions," "Hemorrhagic Syndrome" and "Venereal Diseases."
A large bibliography completes this interesting and well written book, for which the authors deserve a great deal of credit.
