Most of the recent books on neuroophthalmology have been rather large treatises that delve into both clinical medicine and the pathophysiologic substrates of disease. The ten contributors to this book have combined their efforts to produce a practical guide to common clinical neuroophthalmologic...

Dr. Samuel Vaisrub's editorial "Dying is Worked to Death" (229:1909-1910, 1974) appears to me to be a perpetuation of an unfortunate attitude in medicine toward the subject of death. Though he admits of the possibility that we, as physicians, may be guilty of some neglect of the...

I am in full accord with Dr. Vaisrub about the distasteful spectacle of swarms of individuals making capital out of the current preoccupation with death. When one looks through the journals at the so-called articles on thanatology, one is appalled by the amount of hollow...
ANKYLOSING spondylitis (AS) has recently been associated with the W27 tissue antigen in an incidence of 88% to 96%, as compared to 4% to 9% of controls.1,2 The disease is more prevalent in men than in women, the incidence being 0.4% in men and 0.05% in women.2 Baum and Ziff3 have previously...

I refer to Dr. Whelan's editorial (230:91, 1974) and Dr. Vetto's remarks (230:92, 1974) on the article by Dotter et al (230:117, 1974).
Some of the questions raised by Dr. Whelan (eg, patient selection or contraindications) have been answered in the literature.
Words are abstractions; death is the most real of all realities. No amount of verbal reassurance, unless it brings hope of life or afterlife, can comfort a mother whose child is about to die or a patient who faces a certain death. When a psychiatrist helps dispel anxieties in a...
The care of a severely burned patient imposes a remarkable requirement on the supporting community for nurses, physicians, allied health personnel, special care facilities, and laboratory back-up as well as a large share of hospital beddays. Many hospitals that receive burn cases only...
