The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was isolated as the causative agent following the first case reports of pneumonia with unknown etiology in China . The 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) significantly affected the health care systems in the world . The disease was accepted as COVID-19 pandemic by WHO . Diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19 infection requires multidisciplinary management and there are currently many ongoing studies for possible vaccination and antiviral therapies for the treatment . The major symptoms are known to be high fever and dry cough . Moreover, new symptoms like olfactory and gustatory dysfunction are defined . The epithelium of upper respiratory tract and related cavities (ear, paranasal sinuses) are known to be reservoir for COVID19 virus . Therefore, otorhinolaryngology physicians are one of the highest risk groups for nosocomial transmission . The pandemic altered standard daily working schedule of otorhinolaryngology physicians in the world . Elective operations such as rhinologic and otological surgeries are suspended, and novel prevention strategies were developed to prevent nosocomial transmission during physical examination and surgery . However, the treatment of emergency diseases like deep neck infections, epistaxis, tracheostomy, and head and neck cancers are still going on as expected . COVID-19 associated ARDS is known to require prolonged intubation and mechanical ventilation . But at the moment, the postitive effects of performing tracheostomy is not clearly identified on the outcomes of COVID-19-affected patients . In this study we aimed to review the literature regarding COVID-19 from an otorhinolaryngology point of view . We wanted to show how the pandemic affected daily otorhinolaryngology practice including outpatient clinic, head and cancer treatment, tracheostomy, and otologic manifestations along with preventive measures . In addition, we aimed to emphasize olfactory and taste disturbances which are now included in the COVID19 symptoms.
