Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is infection or inflammation of nasal airway and paranasal sinuses, the etiology of this disorder in multifactorial. CRS is directly related to threatened cardiovascular complications, Hypertension is one of the common chronic disorders that has great effect on the heart and blood vessels. In this prospective clinical study, we attempt to find the relationship between hypertension and CRS by investigated 2 groups of adult patients. The first group is composed of 100 patients of both sexes suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis compared to the second group (control) composed of 100 individuals who are healthy. The results refer that there is an important increase in the blood pressure in group 1 especially above 50 years compare to control group. This study found that CRS has important effect on blood pressure especially in men

Aim: Diabetes mellitus is considered as a lifelong degenerative illness that deteriorates insulin use and production which leads to numerous organ dysfunctions. The relationship between diabetes mellitus and hearing impairment is argued in many literatures. In this study we intended to investigate the relationship between hearing loss and diabetes mellitus to expand and develop the knowledge in this significant field as well as to prevent early hearing impairment.
Materials and methods: We analyzed medical histories and pure tone audiometric charts collected from 32 adult patients participate in this study of both genders, the age was between 20-75 years who diagnosed with diabetes mellitus, seen in outpatient of otolaryngology department in Baquba Teaching Hospital . These results compared to 32 non diabetic individuals (control group)
Results: When comparing the two groups, we observed statistically significant hearing impairment among participants with diabetes mellitus compare to non-diabetic individuals.
Conclusion: The present study shows significant correlation between hearing impairment and diabetes mellitus. These findings may explain the essential neuropathic effects of diabetes mellitus on hearing organs.

The larynx is located in the upper anterior portion of the neck. It lies between the
3rd and 6th cervical vertebrae. The incidence of Squamous cell carcinoma (SSC) of
the larynx is about 25% of all head and neck malignancies. The most common age
involved is middle and old age (between 50 to 70 years). Unfortunately, it has been
found that the tumour presents with advance stages at the time of diagnosis. This
prospective literature has been done in the department of Otolaryngology in
Alkindy Hospital in Iraq. Forty two patients with laryngeal tumour (SCC) at
variable stage has been involved in the study. History taking using a special
quastionair, proper ENT examination and radiological imaging has been taken
from all participated patients. Our results shows that hoarseness of voice is the most
common symptoms. Furthermore, men are more affected than women and the most
common site involved by the tumour in the larynx is the supraglottic part. Further
studies is required for accurate staging of the tumour using both clinical evaluation
and radiological imaging.
