Abstract This excellent monograph, with a foreword by Dr. Weve, encourages the use of diathermy in intraocular tumors. It has generally been considered that most intraocular tumors were so malignant that immediate operative removal of the affected eye was the only suitable treatment. In recent years there are indications that this entirely pessimistic view may not be justified. A number of cases have been reported in the literature in which tumors have undergone spontaneous necrosis and have been transformed into scar tissue. Further, it has been shown that in spite of early enucleation fatal metastases appear in over 40% of cases of melanoblastoma and retinoblastoma. A number of cases of retinoblastoma have been successfully treated by irradiation. In 1932 Weve introduced the method of destroying intraocular tumors by diathermy coagulation. This monograph reports the end-results of 18 cases treated by this method in the Utrecht clinic. The size and position of
