This volume is a collection of papers presented by Rivero dealing with many conditions in the upper respiratory tract. Many of these papers have been published previously in various journals or presented before various medical societies. Rivero has attempted to bring the problems discussed up to date. There is no continuity in relationship of the subjects discussed. Some of the subjects are nasal cough; pansinusitis; total rhinoplasty; two cases of mucocele; intranasal syphilis; mycosis of the pharynx; cancer of the larynx; laryngeal tuberculosis; tonsillectomy; hypertrophy of the thymus, and chronic suppurative otitis media. Although each individual subject is particularly well presented, the book as a whole apparently loses its importance.
