Dr. Lázár has treated cosmetic dermatology in a masterful fashion. Unfortunately, the subject is more or less neglected in medical schools in this country. Besides describing in detail various local applications for the preservation of healthy skin and cutaneous appendages, he presents a review of the many modalities in common use for the removal of epidermal defects, new growths and nevi. Every detail is thoroughly discussed. He endorses the use of the drilling machine, so popular with Kromayer. His chapters on electrolysis, galvanocautery, diathermy and iontophoresis are replete with information unobtainable in other textbooks in English. Unfortunately, the translator has given all measurements in apothecaries' and English linear measure, without their metric equivalents. The book is a valuable addition to English dermatologic literature.
