In view of the fact that the diseases of the larynx have undergone many changes in the last 20 years, the authors have presented a reevaluation of newer concepts. Certain diseases, such as syphilis and tuberculosis, are less frequent, and their clinical aspects have undergone many changes, thanks to the antimicrobial therapy. Other problems have engaged the attention of the laryngologist, such as paralysis of the larynx following surgery of the thyroid, traumatisms and their sequelae following transportation accidents, etc.
Cancer has assumed a very important place in the pathology of the larynx. Not only has its early recognition been facilitated, but, owing to the antibiotics, there has been a further extension of the surgical treatment with more satisfying results.
In the general format of the book, the various chapters deal with (1) general considerations; (2) malformations of the larynx; (3) acute and chronic inflammations; (4) syphilis, tuberculosis, and leprosy
