Otorhinolaryngology is an area of medicine, specializing in diagnostics and treatment of the ear, throat and nose, as well as pathologies of the head and neck. Physicians practicing in the field are called otorhinolaryngologists. Very often, the abbreviation LOR (of the word “laryngootorhinologist) is used.
The term originates from the Greek word ωτολαρυγγολογία (oto – means an ear in the genitive case, laryngo – larynx/throat in the genitive case, logos – science) and literally means a science studying the ear and throat. The full version of the term ωτορρινολαρυγγολογία (otorhinolaryngology) also includes the word rhino, meaning a nose in the genitive case.
Otorhinolaryngology is a section of clinical medicine, which is involved in diagnostics, treatment and prophylaxis of diseases in the internal ear, nasopharynx and throat. At the same time, it is important to point out that the throat means larynx and gullet. That is, otorhinolaryngology specializes in the upper section of the respiratory tracts based in the throat and nasopharynx.
