About this book


Rhinosinusitis is one of the most common health care complaints, with many millions of cases managed annually by a variety of practitioners, from family care physicians and pediatricians to allergists, pulmonologists, and otolaryngologists. Rhinosinusitis: A Guide for Diagnosis and Management provides a comprehensive, practical guide to treating this widespread condition. Medical, surgical, and pharmacological management of both acute and chronic forms are discussed by experts with a wealth of clinical experience. Pediatric considerations and the role of allergies, asthma, and systemic diseases such as cystic fibrosis are discussed. A special chapter is devoted to alternative medicine in recognition of its increasing role in health care management. Diagnostic imaging techniques such as MRI and CT are discussed in detail. Finally, adjunctive surgical therapies are reviewed. Written for both primary care physicians and specialists, this guide will serve as an invaluable quick reference for this common ailment.
