Abstract

The current study was performed to investigate the possible association between nasopharyngeal airway inadequacy due to enlarged adenoid and some dentoalveoular characteristics in subjects 3–17 years old in Mosul City. Twenty four patients (12 males and12 females) were randomly selected from patients who admitted to Ear Nose and Throat Department at Al–Zahrawi Teaching Hospital in Mosul City and who indicated for adenoidectomy to relieve severe nasal obstruction. Sixteen variables were recorded and analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences system loaded on Pentium IV computer. The results proved that a significant correlation existed between nasopharyngeal airway inadequacy due to enlarged adenoid and some dentoalveoular characteristics and females were having high incidence of tonsillar enlargement than males.
