Abstract

The authors observed a clinico-immunological effect of cryosurgical treatment for chronic hypertrophic pharyngitis resistant to previous conservative therapy. Cryosurgery results in the patients' recovery with normalization of basic indices of local and systemic immune defense to day 30. Thus, cryosurgical treatment of patients with chronic hypertrophic pharyngitis has both clinical and immunological advantages over conservative treatment.
