This book presents the proceedings of a symposium held in November 1975 at the University of Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary in Chicago. There are nearly 30 contributors, mostly from the Midwest. Many of the contributions have, in the meantime, appeared in various scientific journals. While there is not a great deal of new material in the book, it is an excellent review and summary that focuses especially on management, pathogenesis, and the role of the immune system in the prognosis and therapy of ocular tumors. Two chapters stand out as valuable original contributions. One is on the differential diagnosis of leukokoria (Apple, Hamming, and Gieser), and this chapter covers the topic most elegantly and thoroughly. The other one is an erudite discussion on the recent advances in our knowledge of retinoblastoma (Sang and Albert).

The book presents an excellent summary on some of the recent advances in our understanding
