In this authoritative work on cryptococcosis, (the first in a proposed series of monographs on individual mycoses), the subject is presented mainly from the view point of the physician and the medical pathologist, but the more mycological interest is well sustained in a large section on Laboratory Studies. The chapters dealing with clinical features and pathology are profusely illustrated with admirable photographs and photomicrographs and some superb color plates, constituting a veritable atlas of cryptococcosis without entailing any sacrifice of the text.

In the matter of treatment, it must be admitted that chemotherapy has proved very disappointing in cryptococcosis, and surgical measures can be applied only to a very limited extent. It is appropriate, therefore, that the problem of treatment has been discussed at considerable length, and the prospect of success with some of the newer antifungal compounds fully explored in the light of experimental results.
