  • Otitis Media

    Mechanical obstruction of the ET may be caused by primary tumor-like lesions arising from ET or secondary ET infiltration due to nasopharyngeal and parapharyngeal space tumor[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The operation involves removing the adenoids ‐ a nasopharyngeal reservoir of potential respiratory pathogens and a potential cause of obstruction of the nasal airway.[doi.org]

  • Pneumonia

  • Adenoid Hypertrophy

    Assessment of nasopharyngeal obstruction in radiographs was done according to four different methods. Tympanometry was used to evaluate the middle ear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] They included all articles in which an alternative test was compared with nasoendoscopy in children with suspected nasal or nasopharyngeal airway obstruction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After evaluating the patient thoroughly for nasal and nasopharyngeal obstruction ruling out the other causes for the present symptomatology, we found enlargement of Luschka[webmedcentral.com]

  • Serous Otitis Media

    Serous otitis media (SOM) causing deafness is a recognized indicator of nasopharyngeal obstruction and the possibility of a nasopharyngeal malignancy must be considered in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nasopharyngeal cancer can present with nasal obstruction, epistaxis, purulent rhinorrhea, headache, ear pain, serous otitis media , cervical lymphadenopathy, and cranial nerve[acronymfinder.com] The clinical examination must comprise nasopharyngeal inspection, to exclude malignant or benign tumors as causes of eustachian tube obstruction.[symptoma.com]

  • Pierre Robin Syndrome

    Relief of upper airway obstruction was achieved by tracheostomy in three cases and nasopharyngeal intubation in two cases, with reversal of signs of cor pulmonale in each.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Infants, when moderately to severely affected, may occasionally need nasopharyngeal cannulation, or placement of a nasopharyngeal tube to bypass the airway obstruction at[en.wikipedia.org] Neonates with this condition may have emergencies and need intubation or a nasopharyngeal airway.[symptoma.com]
