Otolaryngology is a surgical specialty which treats patients of all ages and both sexes, both medically and surgically. In physical diagnosis course early in medical school we all learned that when we take a history, we start by asking about specific presenting symptoms and direct the rest of the examination accordingly. This textbook “Symptom Oriented Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery” is based on this premise and is designed to provide the reader with the information necessary to proceed with a diagnostic evaluation and plan of management. This textbook is divided into two sections and comprises of total 36 chapters. The first section deals with otology and covers surgical anatomy and physiology of the ear, hearing loss, audiological testing, dizziness/balance problems, imaging of the temporal bone and lateral skull base in otology, tinnitus, aural fullness, discharging ear, facial palsy, etc. The second section is on pediatrics and discusses on nasal obstruction, nasal discharge, epistaxis, snoring child with possible sleep apnea, drooling, hoarse voice, tongue tie, acute mastoiditis, neck lumps etc. These texts are designed to demonstrate how a specific presentation can be approached logically, a diagnosis reached where possible, and how common causes of that specific presentation may be treated. Each chapter has a ‘Pearls and Pitfalls’ section, and flowcharts have been used in the clinical chapters to depict a logical approach to a given presentation.
