The distinguished author, who, with Adrogué, published a volume on strabismus in 1938, presents in this well printed book a thorough analysis and study of the oculorotary muscles. The author's complete survey of the literature is evidenced by a bibliography of 412 references. The 19 chapters of this book begin with the anatomy and physiology of the ocular muscles, the sensory binocular mechanism and latent disturbances of the muscular equilibrium and end with seven sections on the ocular paralyses and a final chapter presenting illustrative clinical cases. There is an index to the chapter headings and contents, but no alphabetical index.
Malbrán from his vast experience, is convinced that the majority of cases of strabismus have a motor origin (anomalies of position, paralyses and pareses). In the portions dealing with the surgical technics employed in treatment, he describes only those procedures which he considers valuable and rational.
