The Diseases of the Breast

Nature volume 114, page 120 (26 July 1924) | Download Citation



THE subject of diseases of the breast is one which presents many problems to the clinician, the pathologist, and the surgeon. Mr. Willmott Evans endeavours to sum up the present views on the subject, and draws on his own experience to express opinions on controversial points. His book is certainly very complete, covering anatomy, physiology, clinical examination, pathology, and treatment down to the last detail. With regard to the disputed subject of dissemination of carcinoma, Mr. Evans has no hesitation in accepting the theory of permeation described by Sampson Handley, writh the reservation that embolism may account for a certain number of meta-stases. The book is well produced and well illustrated; it forms an excellent addition to the literature on diseases of the breast.
