The authors present a very complete study of the tumors occurring in infancy and childhood. They give much credit to their work with Professor Ombredanne and Professor Leveuf. Some of their material is from records to which they had access, but their own personal experiences in the field are remarkably wide. The pathology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment are covered in full. Particular emphasis is laid on the possibility and importance of early diagnosis.
The material is given in an orderly and interesting manner. The book may be used for reference, as the index has been compiled with care. Even one with a very limited knowledge of French would have little difficulty in profiting from the wealth of material available. The numerous illustrations are well chosen. They include pictures of patients, gross and microscopic pathology, and x-ray findings.
