The lectures which were delivered in a postgraduate course held at Frankfurt on the Main in February 1937 are now collected and printed in book form. They aim to give information on new ideas and on the present stage of knowledge pertaining to general subjects of importance to ophthalmologists as well as to ophthalmic problems. Since no specialty can exist independently and must be a part of general medicine, those general subjects were selected which have a direct bearing on ophthalmology.
A consideration of the selection of subjects is interesting, as those presented show the trend in present day ophthalmology in Germany. Most of the papers are on general medical and on neurologic topics and are presented by authorities in their branches. Thus, hypertension, essential and malignant (red or pale), is treated by Volhard from the medical point of view and by Thiel from the ophthalmologic point of view. Lampert
