This is a very specialized book devoted to the clinical features of mechanically induced neuropathies. It deals particularly with localized injury and inflammation in a peripheral nerve in relationship to specific sites where a nerve becomes entrapped in a fibrous or osseofibrous tunnel or courses in a fibrous band. It is a book which will be of interest ot the neurologist, neurosurgeon and orthopedic surgeon, who will find within its pages a lucid description of the several chronic peripheral neuropathies which can easily be mistaken for a central type of lesion. The text, photographs, and in particular the line drawings, are clear and well laid out, allowing for easy reading and ready reference. Monographs of this nature are becoming increasingly numerous and inevitably have a limited field of readers, but it is important that the profession be aware of their existence for in such a book the simple answer to a baffling problem may be easily found.
