From lectures, and with the addition of a number of pictures of unusual, yet characteristic, cases of diseases of the fundus, the author has compiled this book to serve as an aid to physicians and oculists, without attempting to write a formal handbook with many literary references. The typical diseases as they relate to internal medicine, neurology, dermatology, surgery and pediatrics are briefly but clearly described, with particular attention to the fundus pictures and the subjective symptoms, and a complete index is added. The author emphasizes that, in addition to the fundus picture, knowledge of the anatomy of the lesion is of the greatest aid in the diagnosis of a disease of the fundus. He has therefore added many histologic sections which are easily recognized by the specialist without going into minute histologic details, and which serve their purpose best in the form of drawings, rather than of photographs.
