This handsome volume represents an attempt to teach pathology by emphasis on the case history method. After short introductory paragraphs on the various conditions, a case history with a pathologic report is added. Some case reports are accompanied by illustrations. While this method is worthy of commendation, specific case studies are usually furnished in the practical part of any course in pathology and the textbook perhaps should deal with the subject in a more reflective, general and philosophic manner. However, the book is of interest, and the illustrations are especially good.
