This text and atlas, states Prof. G. Favaloro in the preface, represent the most thorough and original treatment of the subject in the literature on trachoma up to now. The text is well printed, and the atlas contains excellent photomicrographs in black and white and in color. The captions are clear and include the name of the stain used and the magnification. The author follows the classification of trachoma offered by Professor Favaloro, who divides the disease into the infrequent benign conjunctival form, the rare purely corneal type, and the common progressive form involving tarsus, conjunctiva, and cornea.
The text, with a complete bibliography at the end of each chapter, and the photographs of pathologic sections taken from autopsy and biopsy material, prove the author's thesis that trachoma not only involves the conjunctiva but also may affect almost all the tissues of the lid, the lacrimal apparatus, and the cornea.
