An interesting monograph by an English surgeon on acute and chronic appendicitis. The author advises immediate operation in the acute stage and sets up definite rules to govern the decision as to operation in the chronic stage. The author rightly stresses the importance of a knowledge of the macroscopic pathology of the appendix. The monograph is well written but does not constitute an important advance. T. R. A.
