This is a new contribution to the currently expanding library of books on the salivary gland in the form of an atlas with 267 photomicrographs. The embryology and histology are magnificently pictorialized in the clear-cut, decisive, uncomplicated fashion one reminiscently recalls in the undergraduate histology and pathology laboratories.
A good deal of one's understanding, or misunderstanding, of the diseases of the salivary glands has heretofore been confounded by the confusing literature on histopathology of these structures. Smith's classification of salivary gland tumors, which in itself may be open to criticism, is used as a basis on which the remainder of the text is structured, acute and chronic inflammatory processes having been excluded and covered in the previous chapter.
There may be some aspects in a text of this sort with which one may take issue, since there are areas in this subject wherein full agreement has not yet been reached.
