This book reviews the physiology and pathology of the ureters and makes a substantial original contribution in the form of 57 succinct case histories and 70 excellent roentgenograms. The table of contents atones somewhat for the lack of the usual subject and author indexes, and the bibliography is commendable. The author's style, unfortunately, is made difficult by his fondness for complex participial phrases, and in the case histories the omission of verbs and use of abbreviations may trouble some readers. Questions suggested by the text are not always answered, as, for instance, on page 40, where the notes on a retrograde pyelogram of a patient with acute gonorrheal cystitis make one wonder what could have justified this procedure and how it may have affected the patient. Nevertheless, the book can be recommended to the serious attention of roentgenologists and urologists as containing many valuable facts.
