This slim addition to the Practitioners Pocket Books is packed full of both practical and theoretic information on allergic dermatoses due to physical agents. The material originally appeared in a symposium published by the American Practitioner and Digest of Treatment, August, 1956. Dr. Baer, the editor, after first commenting on the many intricate and fascinating facets of this group of diseases, discusses the factors thought necessary to establish the allergic theory of the mechanisms involved in these diseases; then Lorincz, Herman Allington, Stephan Epstein, Jillson, Sylvia Griem, and Rothman discuss, respectively, diseases due to trauma, light, heat, and cold. It is perhaps as fine a group of articles on a difficult subject as exists anywhere, all of them well thought out and well presented, and the 100 pocket-sized pages can be read quickly.
