laryngology

The branch of medicine concerned with the study and treatment of the LARYNX and its disorders. Laryngology is usually clinically associated with the study of the ear (otology) and of the nose (rhinology). An ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist is called an otorhinolaryngologist (ORL).
