Globus sensation —a clinical and histological study


Both clinical follow-up studies and histological examinations of the pharyngeal mucosa were performed in 50 consecutive cases of patients suffering from globus sensation. Particular attention was paid to the coincidence of either sinusitis or tonsillitis. The results led to the conclusion that the so-called globus hysterieus very often can be interpreted as a sensational equivalent to chronic pharyngitis, which sometimes requires surgical measures.
