The book by Weidman and his associates on xanthoma and other dyslipoidoses represents, as the authors say in their preface, essentially a collection of reprints. A correlating introduction and a final chapter on the pathology of xanthosis have been added.

Since many of the important contributions toward a better understanding of diseases of lipid metabolism have been made by Weidman and his associates, the value of the book to the physician who is interested in the lipoidoses is evident. It will be a great aid to him to have this work collected in one volume. For the most recent material on the subject, the reader again must turn to the literature. Progress in this field has been so rapid that the authors of this volume apparently were not able to include references to important contributions in English and foreign languages which appeared in 1939 and 1940.
