in the second. The discussion of the
gastric ulcer emphasizes the four zones
of tissue change necessary for making
this diagnosis. Regional ileitis is well
covered however, there is a lack of description of the equally nonspecific ulcerative
colitis. The section on the liver is concise and well illustrated. The urinary
system is considered incomplete since it
lacks any illustration or discussion of the
histopathology and pathogenesis of chronic
pyelonephritis. The chapter on the haematopoietic system opens with the discussion
of hematopoiesis and a folded chart depicting the monophyletic theory of cell
development. The illustrations in this
chapter are not considered to be as good
as those in text books of hematology, although May Grunwald - Giemsa stains
were used. There is also included a discussion of acute splenitis (acute splenic
tumor, acute splenic enlargement). The
text on the nervous system is limited, but
the lesions are well illustrated with special stains, such as Weigert and van Gieson. There is a three page discussion of
von Economo’s disease (epidemic encephalitis) although there has not been a
reported case of this entity in the United
States since 1929. The chapter on skin
lacks any discussion of pemphigus, probably the only primary skin disease with
an invariably fatal outcome; yet there are
two pages devoted to the pilonidal sinus.
The succinct presentation of the locomotor
system has a discussion of osteomyelitis,
rickets, osteitis deformans, osteogenesis
imperfecta, and rheumatoid arthritis. Trichinosis and ganglion are also described.
The last chapter on endocrine lesions
covers entities such as exophthalmic
goitre, myxedema, the pituitary adenomas,
and Addison’s disease.
The most notable feature of the book
is the 400 colored micrographs. The quality of the reproductions is good and the
magnifications are effective enough to
characterize the tissue changes. The only
deficiency in the quality of illustration is
in the first chapter. The colored micrographs in this chapter are old, having been
carried over from previous editions, and
therefore, are not as good as those obtainable today. Nevertheless, the colored
plates, made from Finlay colored transparencies by Mr. T. C. Dodds, convey a
more realistic impression of the stained
section. The index is complete. There
has been substantial increase in the price
of the book since the fifth edition.
Because of the scope of the volume and
the price, the book is more valuable to
the graduate student and histologist interested in pathology than it is to the
medical student. Many medical students,
however, would find this book a useful
supplement to the standard pathology
texts. Also, ins this respect the volume fulfills a genuine need.
