The size of the book is impressive for a subject somewhat limited; 1,115 pages, of which 114 are devoted to 5,172 references. It has 182 black-and-white illustrations and 15 excellent color plates printed on an effective hyperglossy paper. Bosco, head of the Dermatologic Clinic of the University of Palermo, and his pupils present the result of evaluating an enormous quantity of clinical material and of original experimental work. A first section is devoted to history; relation of cancer to dermatoses, to environment, and to the terrain; the problem of precancer; malignity, and the general clinical and biological aspects. A special section is devoted to the clinical aspects, the cytology and cytodiagnostic aspects, and the etiopathogenesis. Nuclei and cytoplasm of normal and cancer cells are object of a detailed investigation. An original line of study is the allergoimmunitary reactivity of tumors in general and of skin cancer in particular.
