Just before his retirement as Professor at the René-Descartes University, Professor Brégeat published this most useful and informative book. He had always been interested in neuroophthalmology and had contributed on numerous occasions to the understanding of neuro-ophthalmologic problems. Most important were his book on papilledema, which was the annual report of the French Ophthalmological Society in 1956, and a monograph on the optic nerve head, published in 1968. This, his most recent book, discusses pathologic processes affecting not only the chiasm but also the intracranial part of the optic nerves and the optic tracts. The material is presented in a systematic and didactic way. For each entity, the signs, syndromes, and neuroradiologic findings are discussed. The collaborators are J. Metzger, a neuroradiologist who has contributed a great number of radiographs and computerized tomographic (CT) scans, and Y. Fohanno, a neurosurgeon who has contributed chapters on the treatment of these conditions.
