A monograph on cancer embodying no fundamentally new facts concerning the disease may seem to many an unnecessary encumbering of the literature. The intensive study of the subject by so many workers the world over will some day doubtless lead to the discovery of the cause of the disease or its successful treatment. This volume fulfils the need for a brief clinical monograph on the most important forms of cancer. It consists of a series of lectures edited by Paterson. The medical aspects and pathology of the disease are considered in the first two chapters; then follow chapters on cancer of the larynx, esophagus, breast, stomach, uterus, kidney, bladder and rectum. The text is interestingly and concisely written. Brief as it is, it presents in adequate detail the pathology, diagnosis and treatment of the forms of cancer outlined.
