Summary This authoritative and up-to-date reference is a complete guide to the basic science, diagnosis, testing, and treatment of facial nerve disorders and diseases. An international team of renowned experts, put together and headed by the book's two specialist editors, provide in-depth discussion of facial nerve topography and physiology, as well as the broad spectrum of infectious, inflammatory, acute, chronic, benign, and malignant diseases related to facial nerve dysfunction. The book is filled with practical evidence-based information, guidelines, and algorithms presented in uniformly structured chapters, allowing readers to quickly pinpoint key details for treating a specific disease or disorder
