Lectures on timely problems in ophthalmology were delivered in the postgraduate course in Berlin in 1938, under the leadership of Prof. W. Löhlein, the head of the University Eye Clinic in Berlin. The publication of these lectures will be appreciated by many who were unable to attend the course and will be of great value for future reference to the participants. In the selection of these courses topics not only of practical importance but of neighborhood subjects of more theoretic and fundamental importance were selected. A number of the lectures were devoted to neurologic subjects. The titles of the lectures were : "Pathology of Hereditary Diseases;" "The Dangers to the Eye During Pregnancy, Labor and Lactation," which were treated both by an oculist and by an obstetrican; "Problems Connected with the Lens;" "Malignant Exophthalmos in Thyroid Disturbances;" "Lipoid Disturbances ;" "Contact Glasses," and "Keratoplasty."
Professor Löhlein has made an excellent selection of
