The author presents an excellent monogram in which he discusses the problem of bronchogenic carcinoma. He evaluates its development and progress. He describes the technique of bronchography and stresses four important diagnostic measures: the bronchogram, the tomograph, bronchoscopic examination, and, finally, the cytologic examination. He also includes a great number of sketches indicating the possible origin of bronchogenic carcinoma. These, together with photographs of both the bronchograms and the pathologic preparations, help clarify the value and the importance of his technique. He also discusses, among other influences in the development of carcinoma, the role of cigarette smoking. This is an excellent monogram, valuable to the roentgenologist, bronchoscopist, the internist, and the chest surgeon.
