This work is another of the excellent series of monographs on neurosurgical subjects that have appeared from the Neurosurgical Clinics in Stockholm. In the present instance Professor Bergstrand of the Institute for General Pathology and Pathologic Anatomy, Stockholm, and Professor Tönnis of Würzburg have collaborated with Professor Olivecrona. The monograph presents in clear form the authors' experience in a large series of cases of vascular neoplasms and malformations, as well as a comprehensive review of the relevant literature. The authors have classified these lesions as follows:

  1. Angioma cavernosum.

  2. Angioma racemosum.

    • Telangiectasis.

    • Sturge-Weber's disease.

    • Angioma racemosum arteriale.

    • Angioma racemosum venosum.

    • Aneurysma arteriovenosum.

  3. Angioreticuloma (hemangioblastoma of Cushing and Bailey, or Lindau's disease).

  4. Angioglioma (of Roussy and Oberling).

The pathologic anatomy, symptomatology and treatment of each is discussed. The monograph is well illustrated. There is an extensive and comprehensive bibliography.
