A recent study found that over half of all physician office visits stem from ear, nose, or throat problems. This sourcebook, written in non-technical language for the general health consumer, assembles information from various government and agency sources about some of the most common of these disorders. General topics encompass an introduction to the subject; disorders of the inner and outer ear; vestibular disorders; disorders of the nose and sinuses; disorders of the throat; and cancers related to the ear, nose, and throat. Also includes a glossary and a directory of organizational resources. The Library of Congress cataloguing erroneously shows this as v.48. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
