While written principally for otologists in training, this stunningly illustrated volume provides much information for audiologists in recognizing and understanding common and rare conditions such as cholesteatoma, perforations, aural polyps, middle ear effusion, bubbles, glomus tumour, and more. The authors demonstrate that careful examination of the external ear can yield a wealth of information pertaining to the condition of the external ear canal, the tympanic membrane and the middle ear, presenting a range of otoscopic images, each uniquely and clearly captioned and labeled to illuminate each illustration and the anomalies therein.
