Rhinitis is a condition occurs due to inflammation and irritation of Mucous membrane. The inflammation is caused by the degranulation of mast cells in the nose. Irritation of mucous membrane is caused due to allergens like pollen and dander. Rhinitis can be classified as Allergic Rhinitis and non-Allergic Rhinitis basing on the causative agent. Allergic rhinitis is more common in some countries than others; in the United States, about 10%–30% of adults are affected annually.Fungal and Bacterial Rhinosinusitis is caused due to microorganisms affecting the nasal membranes. Infectious Rhinitis or Rhinosinusitis can be treated by vaccinations while allergic rhinitis can be treated by intranasal corticosteroids and antihistamines.

Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, germs can grow and cause an infection. Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include the common cold, allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps, or a deviated septum. In children, common environmental factors that contribute to sinusitis include allergies, illness from other children at day care or school, pacifiers, bottle drinking while lying on one's back, and smoke in the environment.

The nasal passage and paranasal sinuses (collectively sinonasal) plays host to a number of diseases and conditions. This can be collectively termed sinonasal disease or disorder. Sinusitis affecting children is termed as Pediatric sinusitis. This session discusses Acute and Chronic sinusitis along with clinical features, pathophysiology, diagnosis and management. Sinusitis causes Sinus Headaches, the causes and treatment aspects are the major points for discussion. Pediatric Sinusitis can be treated by Sinus surgery. Nasal Irrigation, Antibiotic Therapy and Topical drug delivery are the treatment measures available for Sinusitis. The imaging characteristics of sinonasal inflammatory conditions are varied. The role of imaging is to identify patterns of disease, provide a roadmap for the endoscopist, identify anatomical variants that impact on drainage, and exclude aggressive pathology.

An ear disease is most often a bacterial or viral infection that affects the middle ear, the air-filled space behind the eardrum that contains the tiny vibrating bones of the ear. Children are more likely than adults to get ear infections. Ear infections frequently are painful because of inflammation and buildup of fluids in the middle ear. Because ear infections often clear up on their own, treatment may begin with managing pain and monitoring the problem. Ear infection in infants and severe cases in general often require antibiotic medications. Long-term problems related to ear infections — persistent fluids in the middle ear, persistent infections or frequent infections — can cause hearing problems and other serious complications. In this tracks we go through some of the issue related to era disorder such as Acute external otits, Prechondritis pinna- Cauliflower ear, Congenital malformations- Microtia, Atresia and Otomycosis

The human ear is divided into four main sections: the external ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, and the hearing processing centers of the brain. All four parts work together to conduct sounds from outside the head to the brain and to process it. These tracks will go through the function and disorder of the hearing system of middle and inner ear. A variety of conditions may result in the disorder of middle and inner ear. Ear infections are the most common illness in infants and young children. The other type of disease is called Tinnitus, a roaring in your ears, can be the result of loud noises, medicines or a variety of other causes. Meniere's disease may be the result of fluid problems in your inner ear; its symptoms include tinnitus and dizziness. Some ear disorders can result in hearing disorders and deafness.

Tinnitus-the perception of sound in the absence of actual external sound-represents a symptom of an underlying condition rather than a single disease. Several theories have been proposed to explain the mechanisms underlying tinnitus. Tinnitus, the noise can be intermittent or continuous, and is very loud. Tinnitus is often associated with hearing loss, it does not cause the loss, nor does a hearing loss cause tinnitus. People with tinnitus experience no difficulty hearing, and in a few cases they even become so sensitive to sound that they must take steps to muffle or mask external noises. Prolonged exposure to loud sounds is the most common cause of tinnitus. Up to 90% of people with tinnitus have some level of noise-induced hearing loss. The noise causes permanent damage to the sound-sensitive cells of the cochlea, a spiral-shaped organ in the inner ear. A single exposure to a sudden extremely loud noise can also cause tinnitus. This track deals some of the most important topic which includes: Chronic sensorineural tinnitus, Tinnitus from sound exposure, Pharmacological treatment and Behavioral treatment, Electrical stimulation and Vascular compression of the auditory nerve.

Hearing loss is the most common form of sensory impairment in humans and affects more than 40 million people worldwide. Over recent years, more than 100 genetic loci have been linked to hearing loss and many of the affected genes have been identified. This understanding of the genetic pathways that regulate auditory function has revealed new targets for pharmacological treatment of the disease. Moreover, approaches that are based on stem cells and gene therapy, which may have the potential to restore or maintain auditory function, are beginning to emerge.

Head, Neck & Oral Oncology encompasses all aspects of clinical practice, basic and translational research on the aetiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, assessment, management, follow-up and prognosis of patients with head and neck tumors and carotid body tumor. The Head and Neck Surgery track will provides the details of advanced diagnostic testing and leading-edge medical and surgical treatment for the full scope of head and neck conditions. Head and neck cancer is strongly associated with certain environmental and lifestyle risk factors, including tobacco smoking, alcohol consumption, UV light, particular chemicals used in certain workplaces, and certain strains of viruses, such as human papillomavirus. These cancers are frequently aggressive in their biologic behavior, patients with these types of cancer are at a higher risk of developing another cancer in the head and neck area. Head and neck cancer is highly curable if detected early, usually through surgery, but radiation therapy may also play an important role, while chemotherapy is often ineffective.
