Statistics and Scope:
The field of ENT (otorhinolaryngology) includes a broad range of procedures, often using advanced technology both at the bedside and in theatre. Recent decades have seen the discipline expand to include subspecialties like head and neck surgery, neuro-otology, anterior and lateral skull base surgery, allergology and paediatrics.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), hearing impairment is the greatest sensory deficit globally. There are 360 million people worldwide suffering from disabling hearing loss (>40 db), more than half of whom live in low- and middle-income countries. Of greater concern is that these people may not be identified as having hearing loss, because there are not enough screening programmers in place.
Perhaps most tragic, 50% of all causes of hearing loss are preventable -causes that can be alleviated by early prevention techniques, including screening programmes and early definitive management strategies. HIV-positive people have an increased risk of developing hearing loss – primarily from the disease (non-iatrogenic), from opportunistic infections, or from the effects of drugs related to treatment. Antiretroviral therapy (ART), alone or in combination with other treatments, could add to the overall toxic effect on hearing. The global burden of illness from chronic suppurative otitis media (chronic active otitis media) involves 65 – 330 million individuals with otorrhoea, 60% of whom suffer from significant hearing impairment. Prevalence varies in different population groups, with local prevalence rates in SSA ranging between 0.4 and 4.2% – 50% of these cases presenting in children under 10 years.

Market of ENT:
Head and neck squamous cell cancer (HNSCC) is the sixth most common malignancy and the eighth leading cause of cancer death worldwide. The incidence in the developing world is on the rise -attributable to increased life expectancy from communicable disease control, excess tobacco and alcohol consumption (risk factors for head and neck cancers) and HIV. Treatment outcomes for patients treated in developing world versus developed world countries are quite different. An association between cancer fatality rates and national income – the cancer case fatality rate in low-income countries is 75%, as opposed to 45% in high-income countries.
HNSCC is also the third most common head and neck malignancy for patients with HIV (after Kaposi’s sarcoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma). Although not an AIDS-defining illness, HNSCC is seen in excess among HIV-infected individuals, and is sometimes referred to an ‘opportunistic’ cancer. Patients with a suspicious persistent head and neck lesion should always be referred for further investigation.
In addition, there is growing evidence that confirms the causative relationship between oncogenic human papillomavirus (HPV) and oropharyngeal squamous carcinoma in the general population. The prevalence of HPV in oropharyngeal cancer, especially tonsillar cancer, is as high as 90%. HPV type 16 is most commonly involved. An unexpected and positive finding in the literature is HPV-positive HNSCC being associated with high-stage tumours, but actually having better survival.
There are many challenges that face ENT specialists – as clinicians who value contribution to individual patients, and in the broader field of population health. Issues highlighted in this editorial help give insight into the current ENT perspective, notwithstanding other important topics that have not been addressed.
