We analize them by sex, age, monthly distribution, disease entity, department and operation in order to ascertain whether they have ENT disease or not, to chardcterize of the ENT disease who were consulted to our department and to improve interdepartmental consultation. The results are as follows; (We exclude consultation for emergency operation) 1. By sex, the ratio of male and female was 188:114, indicating more male patients than female by 1.7. 2. By monthly distribution, 37 patients (12.3%) in May which was the highest followed by 30 patients (9.9%) in Dec., 29 patients (9.6%) in Aug. and 28 patients (9.3%) in NOv. There was no specificity in distribution. 3. By age, 61 patients (20.2%) belong to 3rd decade which was the highest and the next were 6th decade, under 10 years, and 5th decade in order. 4.
