This is the age of intense study of immunologic processes and their relation to disease. This is especially true of uveitis, both those secondary to known causes and those of unknown causes. Two such books have recently been reviewed in the Archives—one by Allansmith in 1982, and the other by Smolin and O'Connor in 1981. The present volume contains sophisticated reviews with voluminous references contributed by investigators from three countries. Wolfgang Müller-Ruchholtz (University of Kiel, Germany) presents the fundamentals of immunology and their applicator to uveitis; G. Richard O'Connor (University of California, San Francisco) endogenous uveitis; Ellen KrausMackiw (University of Heidelberg, Germany) exogenous uveitis and sympathetic ophthalmia; Hans G. Sonntag (University of Heidelberg) microbiology; H. Konrad Müller-Hermelink (University of Kiel) pathology; William J. Dinning (Moorfields Eye Hospital) therapy; and Henry J. Kaplan (Emory University, Atlanta) immunologic factors in the eye and uveitis.
