Thieme; 2019. doi:10.1055/b-006-160189Comment: Treatment paradigms for oral tongue and floor of mouth (FOM) carcinoma remain primarily surgically based, with additional postoperative therapy directed by pathologic features. Despite the central role of the head and neck surgeon, optimal outcomes require a multidisciplinary team of otolaryngologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, speech-language pathologists, maxillofacial prosthodontists, audiologists, and nutritionists. This chapter discusses the epidemiology of oral tongue and FOM carcinoma, relevant anatomy, etiologic factors, clinical presentation, diagnostic evaluation, treatment, oncologic outcomes, and prognosis.
Diagnosis of Allergy, Part 2, Selected from Handbook of Otolaryngic Allergy, Christine B. Franzese, Cecelia Damask, Sarah K. Wise, and Matthew W. Ryan, 2019Source: Franzese C, Damask C, Wise S et al., ed. Handbook of Otolaryngic Allergy. 1st Edition. Thieme; 2019. doi:10.1055/b-006-163739Comment: Most practicing clinicians are not necessarily skilled immunologists on the latest benchtop research. Immunology is one of the subjects that has been taught to medical students and, while important, it doesn’t seem applicable in day-to-day clinical practice. However, having knowledge of the basic mechanisms involved in allergic disorders is helpful in fully understanding how treatments for these diseases work and how to maximize the benefits for the patients.
