The modern assessment, understanding, management, and prevention of congenital anomalies of the ear, nose, and throat require a multi-disciplinary approach. This book provides a complete coverage of the subject in a precise manner, bridging the gaps between the disciplines of genetics, otolaryngology, plastic surgery, and pediatrics. It is divided into nine sections. The first includes general chapters on medical genetics and dysmorphology, physical measurement of the head and face, epidemiology, human teratogenic effects, and prenatal diagnosis. These are followed by sections on the ear, nose and sinuses, mouth, palate, pharynx, craniofacial region, neck and upper aerodigestive tract. In each section, there is a separate chapter on embryology, followed by another discussing the most common congenital anomalies and their surgical treatment. The sections end with all-inclusive tables of syndromes, providing summaries of their clinical manifestations and patterns of inheritance. The last section presents around a hundred common conditions, emphasizing their otolaryngological characteristics as well as the most recent genetic data on them. This book will serve as a working reference and a valuable source of information for otolaryngologists, clinical geneticists, plastic surgeons, and all those who care for children.
