Targeted Therapies in Otitis Media and Otitis Externa is a text specifically designed for clinicians frequently faced with the diagnostic dilemma of deciding if the patient has an infection of the middle ear, external auditory canal, or if both diseases co-exist.
The book contains advanced information on these entities including breakthroughs on new insights into epidemiology, risk factors, pathogenesis, etiology, new vaccines, and antimicrobial agents (oral, parenteral, and ototopical). Although this book has been written with the primary care physician in mind, all health care providers who encounter patients with ear disease, experts in infectious diseases, allergists, and physician extenders can benefit from its contents.
