The transactions of the 1980 meeting of this venerated society contain a number of interesting articles from which it is difficult to choose. However, I was especially impressed by a presentation by Bagan and Hollenhorst on "Ocular Signs of Intracranial Chordomas." Where else but from the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn, could you get an analysis of 63 patients with chordomas? The article by McInness and co-workers keeps us abreast in the development of the dietary treatment of gyrate atrophy of the choroid and retina. The contribution by Glew and co-workers on "Photochemotherapy and the Eye" is especially informative. Because this kind of treatment is now used more and more by dermatologists, this contribution is especially timely.

The main bulk, however, of this volume consists of 19 theses. Each of them has been screened rigorously by a committee, and each one presents a valuable scientific contribution.
