This book reports the Symposium on Experimental Tuberculosis by a group of leaders in this field. The value of these Ciba publications has already been pointed out in previous reviews. While this volume will not be of immediate interest to most ophthalmologists, those who are engaged in experimental work in tuberculosis of the eye will find it a most important publication.

The chairman of the Symposium was Dr. Arnold Rich, whose work was largely responsible for our current ideas of the difference between allergy and immunity in tuberculosis, and the effect of the allergic response on the clinical course of tuberculosis. It was due largely to his work that the Baltimore school started their experiments in desensitization. In addition to the section on tuberculosis, there is a small addendum on Experimental Leprosy, under the chairmanship of T. D'Arcy Hart.
