It is commonly known that many diseases and conditions of concern to the pediatric patient manifest in the region of the head, neck, ear, nose, and throat. As such, Otolaryngologists frequently work in partnership with their Pediatrics colleagues in the diagnosis and management of such conditions. Indeed, the subspecialty of Pediatric Otolaryngology is relatively young – flourishing in the last three to four decades. Advances in Pediatric Otolaryngology have come from an international collaboration focused on tackling complex diagnostic and surgical issues in less than ideal conditions (small anatomy, underlying genetic malformations, limitations of instrumentation, etc.).

This eBook is written by eminent Pediatric Otolaryngologists chosen by the Editors for their specific research and clinical expertise in the conditions that they discuss. Each chapter provides a succinct overview of the clinical problem and its pertinence for the Pediatrician in managing such conditions. As expected, these are intended to be cursory discussions and of high clinical relevance for our colleagues. We sincerely appreciate the efforts of our authors and the publisher in helping this vision of an eBook dedicated to specific pediatric Otolaryngology conditions come to fruition. We are eager to share this with our health professional colleagues across the world and sincerely hope you find the content of pertinence and interest to the care you all provide.
