The Head and Face

  • John M. Hutson
  • Spencer W. Beasley


The first section is on assessing head size and hydrocephalus, with a discussion of how to judge raised intracranial pressure by papilloedema. Ventriculoperitoneal shunts are now common, so there is a description of how to assess their function. There is a description of facial lumps and anomalies, with sections on the ears and parotid region.
