Diseases of the Inner Ear: A Clinical, Radiologic, and Pathologic Atlas

JAMA. 2011;305(8):830-831. doi:10.1001/jama.2011.196

This most unusual and concise book is essentially an atlas of histological and radiological slides depicting all of the major pathological processes affecting the inner ear. Each of the 13 concise chapters covers a pathological entity or process; each also opens with a core-message box that highlights salient points. The brief preface by John Rutka provides only a hint of insight into to how the atlas was compiled, telling readers that the aim of the book is to provide a rare glimpse of the postmortem changes seen in conditions of the inner ear when specimens for pathological study are not available from living persons.
