Dr. Ashton Welsh has had an unusual interest in the action of and the reaction to drugs, and with the increase of drug use he has found a great increase in the problems which have arisen. The profession should be, and undoubtedly are, very grateful to him for his contributions along this line. As he states in his introduction—``Fixed eruptions are certainly not common." Therefore, it is more to his credit that he is willing to devote such painstaking investigations to present examples of reactions to drugs that commonly are not suspected of being offenders.

"The Fixed Eruption" should offer a handy reference book to all dermatologists, in fact, to all physicians, and certainly should be on the shelf of readily available texts in all dermatological training centers.
