This is the third in the series of annual reviews in which the year's advances in the field of pediatrics are summarized for the practitioner.

Each year, the authors have selected a few topics to cover in great depth and have reviewed miscellaneous subjects briefly. In this volume the newborn, hormonal disorders, new syndromes, vision, and adolescence are the topics which have been covered fairly completely.

And, as in previous years, one section is devoted chiefly to a basic area of biological science. The subject this year is immunology, with its relevance to autoimmune diseases and its possible relationship to certain allergic phenomena. The current theories and concepts are presented very clearly with the implication that as yet there is no practical clinical application for this mass of information.

The book is readable and informative and should be of value to everyone interested in the problems of infancy and childhood.
