This authoritative volume represents the contributions of sixty leading workers from eight countries to a symposium on all aspects of the hepatitis problem. Each contributor is an expert in the field to which he addresses himself. The volume is, therefore, an important reference work. The symposium, which was held in October, 1956, consisted of six sessions, as follows:
Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology of the Liver (Charles H. Best, moderator)
II. Virology and Epidemiology (Gilbert Dalldorf, moderator)
III. Prevention—Blood Donors and Storage Problems (John R. Neefe, moderator)
IV. Prevention—Chemical and Physical Agents (William S. Tillett, moderator)
Differential Diagnosis—Laboratory Methods (Henry L. Bockus, moderator)
VI. Clinical Management (Cecil Watson, moderator)
There are references following most of the papers. The discussions by members of the conference also enhance the value of the book.
