Appendix I - Illustrative Case Reports
Head, neck, and orofacial infections are commonly seen in medical and dental offices, and, in severe cases, in hospital emergency departments. Head and neck anatomy is complex, with many contiguous spaces, and thus infections in one anatomic region may easily spread to other regions, including the pharynx, eye, and brain. This can lead to devastating results, including airway obstruction, blindness, and altered mental status with cranial neuropathies. Early recognition and correct management of severe infections can be life-saving, especially in medically compromised patients and in those who present late in the infectious disease process. Knowledge of the surgical anatomy and the path of spread of infections in the head and neck is fundamental in correct diagnosis and treatment.
Head, Neck, and Orofacial Infections: An Interdisciplinary Approach is the first book of its kind to present this level of in-depth information for those diagnosing and managing pathology due to infections of the head and neck and orofacial complex. This comprehensive resource provides both time-tested and cutting-edge approaches to patient management.
This book is designed to be of value to a wide range of health professionals:
•Physicians including family physicians, infectious disease specialists, anesthesiologists, internists, hospitalists, critical care physicians, pediatricians, radiologists, and clinical pathologists.
•Surgeons including general surgeons, head and neck surgeons, otolaryngologists, oral-maxillofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons, neurosurgeons, ophthalmologists, dermatologists, pediatric surgeons, and trauma surgeons.
•Dental professionals including general dentists, periodontists, endodontists, pediatric dentists, oral-maxillofacial pathologists, and oral-maxillofacial radiologists.
•Nursing professionals including midlevel providers, those working in hospital infection control, and nurses in emergency care facilities and operating rooms.
