This book is an excellent review of immunology for the ophthalmologist. Hardly a day passes when the ophthalmologist is not confronted with another disease with immunologic implications. Such was not the case years ago, when the ophthalmologist's main concerns with immunology were acute allergic conjunctivitis and the ocular manifestations of the collagen vascular diseases. Therefore, the text is a welcome addition to the field.

The authors provide a lucid and organized account of complicated and involved interactions, including excellent updates on such diseases as sarcoidosis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, multiple myeloma, and Sjögren's syndrome, all with implications for the eye. A reasonable number of clinical and microscopic photographs, some in color, help to demonstrate the text.

In the first chapter, the basic principles of immunology involving lymphocytes and immunoglobulins, as well as cellular and serological reactions, are described in detail. The authors are careful to point out areas of uncertainty or speculation
