This paper-back book contains a portion of the Proceedings of the Second International Congress of Neuro-genetics and Neuro-ophthalmology held in Montreal in September 1967. There are numerous papers on the ocular manifestations of the myopathies and dystrophies. Leber's hereditary optic atrophy is covered in a group of six papers. A portion of the book is devoted to papers which are essentially case reports of neuro-ophthalmologic findings in conditions ranging from trichloroethylene poisoning (in English) to an atypical Franceschetti's syndrome (in French). Two case reports of voluntary nystagmus (called ocular tremor in the paper) add little knowledge to this insignificant entity. François presents a discussion of the congenital ophthalmoplegias which, in addition to drawing on personal experience, is perhaps the most compactly comprehensive review of the literature to be found on this subject. There are 411 references in a profusely illustrated 21-page article! Buried in this collection of papers are gems
