The author has given a well-written and interesting but short review of the cutaneous manifestations of systemic diseases. The book, which contains 122 pages of text, reviews the cutaneous findings in hypersensitivities, blood dyscrasias, rheumatic, nutritional, and endocrine disorders. There is an excellent chapter showing the relationship of certain skin disorders and heredity.

The monograph is small, and as the subject is vast in scope the author, because of limitations in space, was able to give only short accounts of some of the interesting skin lesions in certain systemic diseases.

The book is not comprehensive enough for the dermatologist, but for the medical student the lack of detail will acquaint him in a general way with the skin lesions of the systemic diseases. Also, the book should help to stimulate more interest in the general practitioner in knowing more about the dermatological lesions of systemic diseases.
