Chapter 14 in this recent book on tumors of the head and neck has been written by Charles E. Iliff and concerns tumors of the eye and adnexa. It is an excellent résumé of the subject of extraocular and intraocular tumors and should be of use not only to ophthalmologists, but to general physicians as well, who frequently are first consulted by patients with lesions of this type.

The material is divided anatomically into tumors of the lid; tumors of the conjunctiva, cornea and caruncle; tumors of the iris, ciliary body, choroid and retina, and, finally, tumors of the orbit, optic nerve and lacrimal glands.

The manuscript is beautifully illustrated with photographs of patients and line drawings of operations. Treatment, both irradiation and surgical procedures, is outlined in detail.

The book can be recommended to all ophthalmologists for this chapter alone.
