Atkinson discusses in a lucid manner the many problems associated with abscess of the brain, including problems in pathology as well as those in diagnosis and treatment. The otologist will welcome this notable contribution to the present knowledge of the most serious complication of otitis media.

The logical person to handle properly the surgical problem of abscess of the brain is the otologist, because a most important step in successful treatment is the elimination of the infection in the middle ear and, in the second place, the most successful way of draining an abscess of the brain is by following the route of infection from the middle ear.

The volume contains two hundred and eighty-nine pages, with numerous illustrations covering especially the pathology.
