The comprehensive nature of this text will appeal To many physicians, the study of sinus disease to a wide range of physicians including generalists, reflects a discipline only slightly less interesting otolaryngologists, and allergists. Family physiยญ than a Johnson and Johnson gauze pad, a pursuit cians, internists, pediatricians, and allergists will followed by dilettanti and eccentric professors. To each profit from having a single source that proยญ others, it represents a subsection of an undefined vides an in-depth review of topics pertaining to discipline that crosses barriers of internal mediยญ sinus diseases. The otolaryngologist will benefit cine, pediatrics, allergy, chest disease, and otoยญ from having a single text that provides a detailed laryngology. To patients, sinus problems are discussion of the many ancillary medical problems synonymous with headaches and a chronic source of morbidity. Yet few physicians have been preยญ that influence sinus function and, therefore, surgiยญ cal outcome. We hope that all readers will enjoy the pared, until recently, to do much more than preยญ international choice of authors whose topics have scribe antibiotics, intranasal steroids, antihistamines, been purposely allowed to overlap in an effort to and commiserate for the misery involved. Fortuยญ provide the broadest possible scope of informaยญ nately, this picture shows significant signs of tion. We expect Diseases of the Sinuses to serve as impending remission. The disciplines of clinical immunology, allergy, and otolaryngology have the foundation of an ever-stronger ongoing effort to combat sinus disease
