The author of this small book is one of the two greatest orthopedic surgeons of Austria. He discusses congenital deformities. Practically every illustration is from his own observation. Torticollis, congenital elevation of the scapula and other deformities of the upper extremity are considered; also deformities of the lower extremity, including dislocation of the hip and other defects of the hip, knee, foot and vertebrae. There are short discussions on osteogenesis imperfecta, cartilaginous exostoses, pseudarthrosis, birth paralysis and spastic paralysis. The illustrations, which include photographs, line drawings and roentgenograms, are clear and effective. The book has been neatly published and is well worth the time spent in reading it.
