This book has grown in both quantity and quality through the three editions which have been printed. Considerable new material has been included, such as retrolental fibroplasia, Harada's disease, Bechet's syndrome, the effects of rubella in pregnancy, acute anterior poliomyelitis, the Sturge-Weber and Sjögren syndromes, malignant exophthalmos and scrub typhus. Treatment has been brought up-to-date, with the inclusion of the more modern antibiotics.

As this is a monograph on medical ophthalmology, it is hoped that the author will eliminate chapters which are somewhat irrelevant. The chapters on the normal structure of the eye and orbit and the examination of the patient could well be omitted, as they are found in all textbooks of ophthalmology. This would save 53 pages. In addition, those local conditions of the eye which have no known relation to general conditions of the body could be omitted.

There is a great need for an authoritative text
