Otolaryngology is at home in the practice of Pediatrics, with common disorders in uncommon patients and uncommon disorders in common patients filling many of the moments in both primary and specialty care pediatrics. The broad spectrum of Otolaryngology disorders are seen at every developmental stage, from before birth – with congenital causes of upper airway obstruction, to choanal atresia presenting at birth to the ear infections of early childhood and neck masses and thyroid disorders seen in teens. These problems are best approached through coordinated care and interdisciplinary thinking.

The eminent authors of this volume seek to elucidate and amplify these themes through their chapters in this eBook. The electronic format should facilitate rapid access and referencing, and promote better outcomes for children seen with otolaryngology disorders, and in maintaining the much travelled bridge between the worlds of otolaryngology and pediatrics.
