Paediatric otolaryngology is a medical specialty that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of problems identified in the ear, nose, pharynx and larynx in children. Within this field, there are diseases that almost exclusively affect children. The conditions that most often are usually treated in child otorhinolaryngology are hearing problems, ear infections, allergies, tonsillitis, adenoids, speech problems, apnoea, snoring, sinusitis, swallowing disorders and cysts or malformations in the head and neck. The symptoms of the different pathologies can occur differently in children compared to in adults. Preventing the development of any of these conditions is crucial for the child to grow correctly from a physical, intellectual and social perspective.
