Laryngeal Manifestations of Systemic Diseases synthesizes current knowledge about voice dysfunctions associated with various disorders. The authors review pathophysiology of systemic diseases and their effects on phonation, with summaries of current literature. Clinicians will benefit from the unique case studies, with photos, to supplement various chapters.
Difficulty with the voice is often the first manifestation of systemic disease. Because of this, familiarity with laryngeal manifestation of systemic disease is important not only for otolaryngologists and phoniatrists, but also for family practitioners, internists, medical students, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurse clinicians, speech-language pathologists, singing voice specialists, acting voice specialists, voice teachers, and others entrusted with the care, education, and health of the human voice.

This book is intended for all such professionals, and for patients, particularly professional voice users, who want to know as much as possible about their instrument and conditions that might affect it adversely

“The authors provided an impressively informative and clear overview of various pathologies with the support of current literature and effective tables and figures. With over 120 references, the first chapter of the book provides a very detailed description on the laryngeal anatomy, neuroanatomy, and respiratory function involved with voice. Some chapters are more comprehensive than others. For example, the chapter on laryngeal manifestations of gastrointestinal disorders is over 90 pages with almost 600 references possibly because three of the five contributors to this chapter work specifically in the field of gastroenterology or general surgery. The book covers a large breath of information with a broad target audience, and would be most useful for medical students, otolaryngologists in training, or laryngologists. The authors and contributors did an impressive job on garnering relevant clinical information from fields outside of otolaryngology and assembling into coherent material applicable to otolaryngology. Thus, it would be a great addition to an academic library.” –Catherina Yang & John P. Bent, MD, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in Annals of Otology, Rhinology & Laryngology (November 2019)
