This volume is the second to be concerned with the spinal fluid. It contains a chapter by Guttmann on the physiologic and pathologic aspects of the mechanics and dynamics of the cerebrospinal fluid, which is well illustrated and concise, yet comprehensive. Steuvers contributes an article on roentgen diagnosis. Finally, there is an excellent monograph by Guttmann on the diagnosis of disorders of the brain and spinal cord by means of contrast mediums. This deals capably and in detail with encephalography, ventriculography and other methods of diagnosis of disorders of the central nervous system by means of contrast mediums. The bibliographies and illustrations are excellent. The volume can be highly recommended.
