We are fortunate to have an English translation of the outstanding French work, Precis de Mycologie, written by the late Dr. Maurice Langeron. This part on Mycoses of Man and Animals, devoted entirely to medical mycology, was added by Prof. R. Vanbreuseghem and has been translated into English by Dr. J. Wilkinson. The entire work is interesting and authorative but stresses the deep mycoses more than those commonly seen by the dermatologist. Clinical manifestations are not emphasized but are adequately considered. Details about cultures, skin testing, animal innoculations, and treatment are succinct and practically an expanded outline with a long list of references. The illustrations, though few in number, are generally good, those of microscopic features being superior to the clinical pictures. In these days of new and strong emphasis on mycologic diseases, this book should be a worthwhile addition to any dermatologist's library.
