Allergic diseases have been described as a modern epidemic, with over 20% of the population suffering from allergic rhinitis, asthma or atopic eczema. Of these diseases, allergic rhinitis is the most common and the most underdiagnosed and wrongly treated.

The effects of the symptoms of rhinitis, allergic or otherwise, on quality of life are well documented. While severely affected individuals are treated by a variety of specialists depending on the presenting condition, the majority are seen by generalists. This short and very practical text has been written specifically for this group so that treatment can be optimised and referral decisions made easier.

  • Designed to promote early, accurate diagnosis and optimise treatment
  • Includes the very latest information on the treatment of allergic and other forms of rhinitis, acute and chronic rhinosinusitis, nasal polyposis
  • Covers comorbidities such as asthma, adenoid hypertrophy and otitis media with effusion

Introduction; Allergy: an increasing problem; Allergens; Pathogenesis; Classification of allergic rhinitis; Seasonal allergic rhinitis; Non-allergic rhinitis; Diagnosing rhinitis; Therapeutic principles; Rhinosinusitis and nasal polyps; Comorbidities and complications of allergic rhinitis; Future trends.

'Rhinitis is not just a runny nose! Hay fever and perennial rhinitis affect a quarter of the population of Westernised countries and have a major impact on quality of life, sleep and schoolwork performance. The medical and surgical talents of two of the most prominent rhinologists in the field have combined to produce a clear, concise, easy to read and beautifully illustrated text. I am not lending my copy to anyone!' Professor Stephen R Durham, President, British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology
