Since von Hebra first described rhinoscleroma in 1870, 149 cases have been reported in North America, and 4,000 cases have been found in the world literature, thus removing this disease from the exotic category. The authors have done a commendable job researching the world literature, searching for material statistics in their own Venezuela, compiling data, and presenting it in this complete, clear, and concise monograph. Nine of the authors' case histories, complete with photographs and photomicrographs, are included. A couple of hours spent with this book can make any otolaryngologist an expert on rhinoscleroma.
