This volume presents a rational discussion of the common ailments of the ear, nose and throat. Symptomatology, prognosis and medical treatment are stressed. The indications for surgical intervention are also clearly outlined. A considerable amount of emphasis is placed on dietary and hygienic regimen, physical therapy hydrotherapy and climatotherapy.
While most of the common ailments are discussed, it seems that emphasis is placed on the routine follow-up treatment as applicable particularly to general practice. Little emphasis has been placed on anatomy, physiology and surgical procedure. However, the discussions of each malady from the prognostic and medical therapeutic standpoints are rational and in accord with prevailing opinions.
This is a splendid handbook for the general practitioner and should be of much interest even to the otorhinologist, since so much stress has been laid on the hygienic and medical problems.
The book is published in Spanish.
