A splendid contribution to the rapidly growing neurosurgical literature has been made by these two authors. The book is devoted to the problems of diagnosis and is of special value to the neurosurgeon, since the entire outlook of the authors is primarily neurosurgical. Neuropathology and neurophysiology are thoroughly and interestingly covered, with excellent line drawings plentifully evident. Neurosurgical diagnostic procedures are well described. Regional diagnosis from symptoms is correlated with anatomic location of the injury or disease.
This is a valuable addition to the library of any neurologist or neurosurgeon with a working knowledge of French.
