Description / Abstract:


Upper respiratory tract infections and, especially, sinusitis are frequently encountered in the day-to-day practice of infectious disease specialists, allergists, pediatricians, otolaryngologists, internists, and family practitioners. The range of causative agents and available therapies and the constantly changing spectrum of antibiotic resistance can make it difficult to select the most appropriate course of treatment. Given the increasing global concerns regarding the scale of worldwide bacterial resistance, which is largely because of the misuse and overuse of antibiotics, information that can enable physicians to optimize management of infections such as sinusitis will be of great value.

This book provides state-of-the-art information on management of sinusitis tailored to the clinicians and health care providers of varied specialties. It contains a liberal number of figures and tables that clarify the underlying concepts and illustrate specific details. The authors selected to contribute to the book are the world experts and leaders in the topic(s) they address.

The book opens with a comprehensive overview of the epidemiology, clinical presentation, and diagnostic techniques of sinusitis. It then delves into the pathophysiology and the microbiology underlying the condition. The next section of the book addresses the medical management of acute and chronic sinusitis as well as the comorbid medical symptoms. We then conclude with the surgical management of these conditions and their complications. It is our hope that this book will be a useful tool and an important resource for clinicians in the management of sinusitis.
