Logan Turner's Diseases of the Nose, Throat, and Ear, Sixth Edition elaborates the treatment of malignant disease of the larynx and ear. This book covers relevant topics, including sulfa drugs and antibiotics, peroral endoscopy, and affections of the paranasal sinuses. Organized into 43 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the functions of the larynx that vary in significance, including protection of the lungs, phonation, fixation of the chest, and a channel for respiration. This text then explores the various processes of examination of the cavities of the nose. Other chapters consider the deformity called saddle nose, which consists in a sinking-in of the dorsum of the nose. This book discusses as well the examination of chronic catarrh of the middle ear. The final chapter deals with the congenital defects of the labyrinth, which are responsible for the condition known as sporadic congenital deaf-mutism. This book is a valuable resource for clinicians.
