This excellent volume is designed for the medical student, general practitioner, and general surgeon, but it is also a valuable addition to the library of the proctologist. Illustrations are clear-cut and informative. Especially helpful to the medical student are the tables of differential diagnosis taken from earlier works of the senior author. The authors have given some attention to the etiological importance of anal infection in the common anorectal disorders, such as fissure, hemorrhoid, abscess, and fistula. The inclusion of an excellent chapter on intestinal parasites is timely and appropriate.
