Ophthalmologists will be interested in this book for the two chapters on tumors of the eyelids and orbits, by Cecil O'Brien, treatment of tumors of the eye, by Ira S. Jones. There is a chapter on methods for relief of pain in cancer of the face and neck, by Francis Grant, which also has ophthalmological application. The second edition, however, varies very little from the previous edition, and the bibliography quoted in the section on lid and orbital tumors contains nothing beyond 1948. The section on treatment, however, does contain more recent references and particularly the treatment of retinoblastoma by radiation and triethylenemelamine.
