This brief work is, to my knowledge, the first concerned primarily with disorders of the peripheral fundus. It fills a large gap in the ophthalmic literature by collating many subjects heretofore described only in diverse references. Topics are logically grouped into nine separate chapters. The text is well illustrated with photographs of both clinical and pathologic specimens. The differential diagnoses of retinoblastoma and malignant melanoma are excellent. Many other subjects are also well discussed. The authors avoid many controversial aspects of diagnosis and treatment. This omission is probably best for most readers. Those interested in pursuing certain topics can refer to the bibliography. This text is recommended for students, residents, and general ophthalmologists interested in this field.
