A mutually rewarding relationship between Internal Medicine and Dermatology is of utmost practical and theoretical importance. The disease classifications which perhaps most nearly illustrate the need for such an alliance are those of the "collagen" diseases and the group of afflictions known as the malignant lymphomata. The book presently reviewed is the product of the author's vast personal experience and an exhaustive review of the clinical literature pertinent to cutaneous manifestations of the lymphomatous disorders. Essentially no new material is presented, but rather a summary of detailed clinical descriptions plus the author's well-considered opinions based upon many years of observation. Dr. Bluefarb's personal views on the nature of the relationship between mycosis fungoides and the other systemic lymphomata is precisely stated, and, if doubted by some, certainly cannot be disproved.
Two large sections devoted to mycosis fungoides and Hodgkin's disease occupy the bulk of this book; short chapters on lymphosarcoma
