Although the first edition of this book appeared in 1935, extensive additions and changes already have become necessary. Discussions of dermoid cysts of the nose, nasal telangiectasia, injuries to the nose, the cytology of nasal secretions, granulocytopenia, burning tongue, tuberculosis of the larynx, and other subjects have been added or extensively modified. The material has been presented in simple form with emphasis on symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. Some loose statements have crept in, such as "estimation of the severity of the luetic infection of the nose and throat can also be made from the intensity of the reaction" (Wassermann test). While not a conventional textbook or reference book, this should be found helpful to those who accompany their reading of the book with practical clinical and surgical experience.
