Differential Diagnosis in Otolaryngology is a must-have reference and refresher for clinicians in otolaryngology who need to update their knowledge of their own and other subspecialties in the field of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. It is also a valuable tool for otolaryngology residents and fellows as they prepare for daily practice or study for exams.
