An otolaryngology evaluation is an important aspect of care for any patient with craniofacial conditions. Otolaryngologists are commonly involved in the care of these patients to treat chronic otitis media, which frequently requires placement of pressure equalization tubes; however, there are many other otorhinolaryngologic issues that are addressed. Patients with craniofacial conditions may struggle with nasal obstruction, airway compromise, obstructive sleep apnea, dysphonia, swallowing, chronic sinonasal disease, and otologic disease.
