This work is a "personal experience" type of monograph. It is not an extensive review of all tumors that have been seen in the eye and adnexa of infants and children, but rather a presentation of those tumors that have been encountered by the authors.
In the introductory chapter of the 141-page monograph, the authors first outline the general features of tumors in the pediatric patients and then briefly discuss irradiation therapy. In the remaining four chapters, tumors of the eyelid, the conjunctiva, the inner eye, and the orbit are reviewed. Dr. Iliff succinctly presents the operative steps, accompanied by simple-to-follow drawings, for exenteration and the lateral and nasal surgical approach to the orbit.
The text is written in an unusually clear, concise, factual, easy-to-read manner. The book is well illustrated. The black-and-white pictures are for the most part satisfactory, but important details have no doubt been lost in many
