Rhinology and Allergy: Clinical Reference Guide is a portable reference guide that fills the void of an easy-to-read, concise, but comprehensive book encompassing all aspects of rhinology and allergy. Each chapter follows a uniform outline to facilitate quick review of a topic, and the comprehensive nature of each chapter provides depth. This clinically relevant resource is organized into seven sections that are broken down into their most important and fundamental parts by chapter, including the History of Rhinology; Embryology, Anatomy, and Physiology; Evaluation and Diagnosis; Sinonasal Diseases; Surgical Management of Sinonasal Disease; Allergy; and Surgical Management of Skull Base Disorders.

As a review book, it is ideal for residents in training and those preparing for board and in-service training examinations as well as medical students looking for a "deeper dive" into the world of rhinology. However, it is also excellent for the practitioner who wants to get a succinct update on the latest, cutting-edge knowledge in rhinology, allergy, and endoscopic skull base surgery. The information is authored by a collection of "who's who" of modern rhinology.

Formatted like the bestselling "Pasha" (Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery) pocket guide, this text provides a condensed amount of high-yield information with a multidisciplinary approach to bring a broader range of insight into complex clinical challenges.

Key features include:

  • Contributions by leaders in the field
  • Tabs for each section for quick access
  • Key terms and notes in bold and italics


"Senior & Chan have managed to pull together a leader in this field, boiling down the salient points of rhinology into bullet points. If long prose is not your cup of tea then this may be just the fact-filled miniaturised tome you have been looking for, although, for me, 562 pages of lists, on first inspection, appears quite daunting. The book follows a logical structured format and allows the reader to quickly grasp the entirety of rhinology, in a way that is difficult to achieve without investing heavily in a number of larger texts. Beautifully constructed, colourful textbooks have a place and Rhinology and Allergy fills a need at the other end of the spectrum. . . . In summary this is a great book for trainees wishing to take the next step and purchase a dedicated rhinological text. Its physical size makes it very user friendly. More seasoned surgeons will be delighted by its no nonsense format and possibly see it as an aide-memoire during those senior moments."
David E.J. Whitehead,  in Journal of Laryngology & Otology (June 2018)

"The introductory sections on history, embryology and anatomy and physiology are a delight to read, and concise enough as a gateway to the clinically relevant sections on ‘Evaluation and Diagnosis’, ‘Sinonasal Diseases and their Surgical Management’, ‘Allergy’ and the ‘Surgical Management of Skull Base Disorders’. The information presented is up to date, clinically relevant, comprehensive and extremely easy to navigate. In particular, chapters on radiology, sinonasal manifestations of systemic disease, complications of endoscopic surgery and allergen immunotherapy, stand out in presenting complex information concisely and clearly. The chapter on ‘Objective Measures of Nasal Function’ is well-written and, like the remainder of the book, the information is accurate and comprehensive. [...] The editors have achieved a great deal in attaining consistency in the detail of information presented concisely from a number of authors. It fulfills its objective of providing a clinical referencing guide aimed at registrars and those preparing for exams. This portable, easy-to-read, comprehensive, navigable and up-to-date textbook is certainly relevant and would be helpful addition to the bookshelf of any ENT department, or indeed the satchel of any trainee wishing to consolidate their knowledge in rhinology."
—Maha Khan, MBChB, MRCS (ENT), Salford Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, in ENT & Audiology News (April 2020)
