This elaborate and comprehensive book on rheumatoid tuberculosis of the joints, volume 5 in a series on the x-ray diagnosis of bone and joint diseases, is divided into chapters on tuberculosis of the joints of the hand, the shoulder, the foot, the knee, the hip, the sacro-iliac region and the vertebrae. The second part deals with multiple lesions, including diseases, Heberden's nodes and mono-articular infections. There are several excellent illustrations of rhizomelic spondylosis with the bamboo pole appearance involving the cervical thoracic and lumbar vertebrae. The author discusses 378 cases and presents an extensive bibliography under eighteen headings. This fine volume is chiefly a reference book, highly technical and of value to those who read German easily.
