These two volumes of carefully assembled, well-printed articles presented at the Pan-American Congress in 1950 in Montevideo give an immediate appreciation of the surprising amount and the excellent quality of the work being done by our Latin-American neighbors. The material is too voluminous for a short review, but the evidence is apparent that the Congress is a strong and progressive organization.
The papers cover all phases of the three branches of otolaryngology, and most of the work is of the nature of original investigation of superior quality. There is a remarkable independence of thought and study given the subjects, and no accusation can be made that the authors are merely following the lead of the older groups in Europe and America.
The text is for the most part in Spanish, with an occasional English translation.
