Recurrent rhinopharyngitis - Definition

April 2017


Definition


Rhinopharyngitis, typically referred to as the common cold, defines a wide-spread inflammation of the nasal and pharyngeal mucosa. This disease is qualified as chronic when it occurs on repeated and frequent occasions, in which case it is often associated with allergies, such as allergy to dust mites or animal hair. It can also be a seasonal affliction, caused by pollen or rapeseed allergies. This disease typically manifests as nasal blockage, clear-fluid secretions, and frequent sneezing.
