Cases in Head and Neck Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach is written by clinicians specialising in the management of patients with upper aerodigestive tract cancers in a multidisciplinary fashion. The authors have described the management of cancers in each subsite of the upper aerodigestive tract, which includes history, symptoms, diagnostic strategies, surgical and non-surgical treatments in a very detailed and comprehensive manner. It also describes management of HPV related cancers.

Surgical treatments also describe TORS. Post treatment speech and swallowing management strategies are also discussed at length. This book also covers cancer treatment related morbidities and toxicities, which is very important in the management of head and neck cancer patients. It’s a must read book for clinicians who manage patients with head and neck cancer. The book is very well written, easy to read and understand, and it includes access to video and audio clips. It provides comprehensive understanding of the management of head and neck cancer patients utilising the multidisciplinary approach.

The wealth of knowledge in this book will benefit all members of the head and neck multidisciplinary team as it ably shows how a multidisciplinary approach benefits patients. The book will also benefit registrars who are preparing for the FRCS exam and have a special interest in head and neck surgery. I would rate it 5/5, as it is useful, informative, up-to-date and good value for money.
