As in previous years this collection of reviews covers a wide range of topics which extend, this year, from surgery of the heart to preventive psychiatry. Most of the reviews, however, will be useful for internists. Topics in microbial disease include fungal infections, viral encephalitides, and chronic pyelonephritis. Cummings and Hammarsten have reviewed sarcoidosis. Chapters on the biochemistry of hemolytic disorders, on hypersplenism, and on chemotherapy of neoplastic diseases form a group pertinent to clinical hematology. From among pulmonary topics, the "alveolo-capillary block" syndrome and functional tests in chronic obstructive lung disease are reviewed by Bates and by Gaensler, respectively.
