In preparing the material for this book, I took the advice of my students who generously shared their views and opinions with me. I was told that it would be preferable to have images of the various diseases with legends describing the disease. Students would be able to learn and retain the inf- mation more successfully if the material was accompanied by pictures and schematic drawings. Recent advances in technology have made it possible to photograph regions that are difcult to view with the naked eye, such as the ear, nose, throat, nasopharynx, and larynx – all the areas of otorhinolaryngology. Such an illustrated text in this feld is important and necessary for teaching purposes. In this book I tried to compile images of the basic conditions that are commonly seen in general practice and to give the reader a visual survey with a brief description of the condition. I added tables and schematic drawings in order to provide practical information. It is not the purpose of this book to be a comprehensive textbook, since many textbooks are already available with more detailed information of the conditions illustrated here. This book is primarily intended for medical students, family and general practitioners, and ENT trainees. It may also serve as basic reading material for those in allied specialties. I hope my colleagues fnd this book useful and it contributes toward their teaching purposes.

How can genetics be useful to general otorhinolaryngologists and their patients? This book summarizes the most recent information on genetic diseases, including deafness and head-and-neck cancer, that is relevant to clinical practice, particularly with reference to accurate genetic counseling. The first part of the volume presents a basic and general review of genetics. Up-to-date information on deafness genes is given and the mouse model for hearing impairment is thoroughly described. The application of molecular analysis of head-and-neck carcinoma has been one of the fundamental breakthroughs in understanding the cell biology of the carcinoma. Two chapters are devoted to the discussion of tumor suppressor genes and oncogenes. This book is highly recommended since genetics, particularly molecular genetics, is still an unfamiliar subject to otorhinolaryngologists.Yet there is a constant need to be alert to the possibility of diagnosing hereditary disorders and to obtain genetic consultation for a complete evaluation. A comprehensive list of references is given for those who wish to find more detailed information.
