About this book


This comprehensive text summarizes what is known about the myriad of different neurological conditions that cause dysfunction of communication, swallowing, and breathing as it relates to the upper aerodigestive tract.  It serves to provide clinicians and scientists, at all levels of experience, a practical and thorough review of these diseases, their management, and frontiers in science. Chapters are written by experts in these conditions from a broad spectrum of medical specialties in order to create a book that is inclusive of diagnostic and therapeutic considerations that clinicians should think about when caring for patients with these conditions.

Neurologic and Neurodegenerative Diseases of the Larynx will be an instrumental resource in guiding clinicians to better recognize the subtle and not so subtle voice, swallowing, and airway manifestations of these diseases, and improve management of patient symptoms and concerns in order to maximize both quality of life and longevity.  It will aide otolaryngologists, laryngologists, neurologists, speech language pathologists, and other allied health care professionals in developing a more efficient, evidence-based, patient-focused, and multi-specialty approach to managing these complex  and challenging patients.
