This atlas was written for the medical student, audiologist, nurse, hearing aid dispenser, chiropractor, and other nonotolaryngologic clinicians, and to those of us who teach them. Its format is a narrated pictoral atlas that contains numerous illustrations and black-and-white photographs in addition to 140 beautiful and accurate color photographs of otologic diseases. This atlas represents a ready reference for the student and teacher to assist in interpretive skills.

The volume contains ten chapters. The first five chapters are devoted to the history of otoscopy, the instruments used for examination, the clinical anatomy and physiology of the ear, and the clinical examination. Chapters 6 through 9 beautifully illustrate common otologic diseases and accompanying narrative of the definition, etiology, symptoms, otoscopic appearance, further investigations to be employed, and treatment guidelines that relate to each disease. The last chapter on therapeutic principles predominantly details the medical preparations used in treatment of otologic diseases.
