The second edition of this book is a complete revision of the earlier volume published in 1936. Many new additions to the work are included. This is a complete synthesis of the present anatomic, physiologic, and pathologic considerations of the nasal fossae.
The book is divided into two principal sections—general and special pathology. Considerable attention is given to both gross and microscopic anatomy, the neurovascular system, and physiology. The interrelationships of the nasal allergy and nasal hormones are emphasized.
Considerable attention is given to the special pathology of the nasal chambers. The newer nomenclature and the changes in therapeutic procedure with the inclusion of the role of the antibiotics are amply described.
