The author is chief physician at the urologic clinics of the University of Chile and the Salvador Hospital, the most important in Chile. His book is the thesis submitted when he applied for the position of supernumerary professor of urology at the university. It is divided into two parts, the first dealing with the development of pyelography, technic, objections and the normal anatomy of the pelvis and the ureter. The second concerns itself with pelvic, ureteral and renal anomalies and changes which may be shown by pyelograms. The author insists that many objections to pyelography may be obviated with care on the part of the operator. Dr. Ibarra shows knowledge and sense in his discussion of the various points involved, and is not averse to stating how and why he came to his conclusions. The book is profusely illustrated with samples of the author's work, several of which are interesting.
