This is a comprehensive publication on the varied spinal deformities resulting from trauma. It is profusely but pertinently illustrated with both roentgen ray findings and actual pathologic specimens, illustrating both the end results in loss of bone, hypertrophies of isolated parts from fibrous and bony growth and the resultant deformities with or without compression of the spinal cord. The healing of bone with the component elements of bone, cartilage and fibrous tissue has been well presented. The roentgenographic views varying with the individual lesions of pedicles, laminas and the bodies of the vertebrae display the best standards of roentgen ray technic. Lob very properly predicates operative interventions such as spinal grafts or laminectomies. One is surprised to find only casual mention of the traumatic protrusions of vertebral disks, which now form such a fertile field for surgeons in this country.
