Dr. Fedou's book represents a great deal of meticulous work involving electron microscopy of the pancreas. The individual acinar cell of the normal human pancreas is morphologically detailed, and excellent reproductions are presented. After establishing the normal ultrastructure, Dr. Fedou embarks upon what might be called comparative electron microscopic anatomy. The tissues used for comparison with normal are ethionine-induced pancreatitis in animals, and acute and chronic recurrent pancreatitis of mechanical and idiopathic or metabolic origin in man. Dr. Fedou makes a serious attempt to correlate anatomy and physiologic function both in the normal and diseased pancreas. The profound similarities he
