Abstract

This book was written primarily for the student and the general practitioner. The matter is admirably presented, concisely, and yet every important phase of otorhinolaryngology is covered. The work is divided into three parts. The first part deals with the anatomy and the physiology of the ears, the nose and the throat. The second part is devoted to a detailed description of various methods of examining the ears, the nose, the throat and the larynx, and this description is graphically supplemented by many photographs and a careful detailed report of the normal findings. The third part deals with pathologic conditions. Each disease is described from the standpoint of cause, symptoms, course, physical findings, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. Emphasis is placed on medical and conservative treatment, and the role of the antibiotic substances and the sulfonamide compounds is evaluated. Surgical intervention, where indicated, is discussed briefly—more or less in outline form.
