A textbook that addresses the broad area of the pathology of head and neck diseases has been lacking in the field of otolaryngology–head and neck surgery. Batsakis' textbook Tumors of the Head and Neck has been the classic in our field but restricts itself to neoplastic or neoplasticlike disorders.
