The tide of changing otorhinolaryngological opinion is reflected in the fourth edition of this book. Many sections have been completely rewritten, including material on the physiology of the nose, the vestibular labyrinth, the eustachian tube, and hearing. Revisions have also been made in the fields of allergy, Ménière's disease, neuropathy of the facial nerve (Bell's palsy) due to pressure, acoustic trauma, the indications for tracheotomy, and malignant neoplasms of the larynx. These newer facts are capably presented in this book.
