Abstract The authors have prepared a text directed to the specialist physician as a guide to the evaluation and management of the pediatric glaucomas as well as to the nonophthalmic physician to alert him to these syndromes. The text, short for the book's 213 pages and 253 illustrations, is well written and lucid, especially in discussing the principles of diagnosis, evaluation of the optic nerve, and the histopathology of these congenital glaucomas. The reader will not find more than an introduction to the clinical syndromes described, but the text is well referenced. Syndromes are included which are rarely seen in children, as primary angle closure glaucoma, essential iris atrophy, and pigmentary glaucoma that are, in this reviewer's opinion, introduced at the expense of more detail in the pediatric syndromes. The surgical therapy section is particularly good on the examination under anesthesia and on goniotomy, describing the authors' technique in detail. Other
