Written by distinguished scientist-clinicians who have made pioneering contributions in the fields of otolaryngology, rheumatology, and immunology, Head and Neck Manifestations of Systemic Disease presents critical information on a multitude of maladies that have manifestations in the head and neck. The book relates commonly encountered head and neck symptoms and signs to an array of diseases and disorders that should be considered in the differential diagnosis.

Offering a hands-on approach, this volume addresses specific disease classifications and commonly encountered signs and symptoms in the head and neck region. It offers a clinical approach to disease diagnosis by analyzing the possible causes of a patient's symptoms. The contributors present evidence-based therapeutic options for a variety of conditions, from infections and rheumatologic conditions to hematologic and neoplastic disease. Organized by disease type for easy reference, the book offers a variety of lucid color photographs, providing a unique reference for clinicians who manage diseases with symptoms in this region.


"This book provides a great wealth of the most current information for today's readers and will serve as a respected resource for decades to come …. a treasure trove of knowledge."

—James B. Snow, Jr., Professor Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and Former Director, National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, National Institutes of Health (from the Foreword)
