This book is designed to help the busy practitioner develop a differential diagnosis for the otolaryngology problems they encounter in the outpatient, inpatient, or emergency setting. The authors discuss clinical presentations and treatments, complemented by photographs of examinations and procedures to help physicians with diagnosis.

The book features concise descriptions and highlights key treatment plans for the most common conditions in otolaryngology. For ease of reference, chapters are organised into five major sections, reflecting the make-up of the specialty: Otology, Rhinology/Skull Base, Laryngology, Head & Neck, Facial Plastics, and Pediatrics.

Easy to read and richly illustrated with relevant clinical photographs and diagrams, Otolaryngology: A Color Handbook will be an indispensable reference for otolaryngologists, primary care providers, physician assistants, nurses, and students.


“This is a superb book that commendably straddles the twin aims of being an atlas whilst at the same is also a standard textbook. Fusing these attributes together produces this excellent book which is a pleasure to read… It will make a good book for an ENT specialist, especially for someone in training whilst it is also a great book for a non ENT specialist like a GP.” – Dr Harry Brown, Glycosmedia

"This concisely-written text is annotated with many colour clinical images and scans. The design is very different to most books: the six sections cover the main domains of the specialty – head and neck, rhinology, laryngology, otology and neurotology, facial plastics and paediatrics…The book is multi-authored with 39 of 41 contributors from the USA. This may give the book a bias towards North American practice that the reader should bear in mind, particularly in regard to terminology. However, any reader who is just starting in otolaryngology will relish the vast array of images and gain a rapid overview of the main factors with each of the described disorders." – Andrew C Swift, University Hospital Aintree, Liverpool
