A symposium on hypertension was held at Hahnemann Medical College in December, 1958. Many of the outstanding experts in hypertension took part in this conference, and this book contains the published papers with the discussions. For anyone interested in hypertension, the book is valuable. Only two chapters relate directly to the eye: these are "Retinovascular Changes in Hypertension," by Albert Brust, and "The Effect of Blood Pressure Reduction on Vascular Changes in the Eye," by Walter Kirkendahl and Mark Armstrong. It should be in every ophthalmological library as a reference work on the present status of the hypertensive patient.
