Abstract

Evaluation of pain in otolaryngology diseases is indispensable in treating patients. Parallel to the etiological diagnosis of otolaryngology disease, a clinical diagnosis of the pain must be made to determine the weighting of the three causes of pain involved in any acute or chronic condition: the component of nociceptive, neurogenic, and psychofunctional pain. This paper will discuss how pain can be quantified and qualified, and how to identify the status of the neurological system of perception and control of the pain process.
