This groundbreaking resource examines the full range of head and neck diseases integrating both pathologic and clinical information for neoplastic as well as non-neoplastic entities. All aspects of pathologic issues are discussed, from diagnosis to the pathologic parameters that have an impact on patient management. Section one covers general principles, including cellular and molecular biology, epidemiology, ethics, HIV and AIDS, and fine needle aspiration biopsies. Then, section two discusses diseases by anatomic site from the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses ...through the thyroid and parathyroid ...to the ear and temporal lobe and neck.
