Abstract

Many pathologists have little acquaintance with ear, nose and throat pathology. Some receive few specimens from ENT tissues; others are deterred from deeper study of material that emanates from regions the normal anatomy of which is so forbidding in its complexity and holds no familiarity through autopsy investigation, for, apart from the larynx, there is usually no compelling indication for examination of the ear, nose or throat at postmortem. Yet, equally with biopsy specimens from other parts of the body, the pathologist’s report is consequential for the efficient handling of ear, nose and throat illnesses and sometimes even for the patient’s survival.
