In publishing this latest volume on ocular microbiology, Drs. Locatcher-Khorazo and Seegal have produced a much needed and up-to-date reference text, useful to clinician and research scientist alike. The 20 chapters presented cover in detail both common and rare examples of ocular infection, drawing heavily and directly from the clinical and laboratory studies of the principal authors and from the experiences of the 14 contributors, all recognized authorities in this field.

The first third of the book covers such areas as general historical background, laboratory characteristics of ocular floral types and the disease states in which they occur, clinical cytologic findings, and aseptic technique. The remainder of the book is devoted to the discussion of specific infectious states including bacterial, mycotic, and viral infections (both DNA and RNA) and trachoma, inclusion conjunctivitis, toxoplasmosis, leprosy, richettsiae, syphilis and allergic states, such as vernal catarrh and neuroretinitis. All chapters are well illustrated
