Thyroid surgery in America is concerned chiefly with the surgery of thyrotoxicosis, which condition forms the common indication for surgery in this country, and with which phase of thyroid disease our literature has been almost entirely concerned. Hence it is that virtually no monograph such as this meets the requirement of the average American surgeon. The text is brief and in a sketchy way covers asepsis, anesthesia, indications, technic, complications, malignant conditions, exophthalmic goiter and twelve or fifteen allied topics. The descriptions and illustrations of technic seem inadequate and at best are more readily adapted to the large colloid goiter rather than to the exophthalmic goiter or toxic adenoma.
