What Is Catarrhal Rhinopharyngitis?

Catarrhal Rhinopharyngitis is another term for the common cold. It is a viral infectious disease in the upper respiratory tract that mainly affects the nose.

This condition involves an excessive buildup of mucus or phlegm in the airways, mouth and nasal cavities of the body. As a result, it causes inflammation to the mucus membranes of the nose and throat. Symptoms include a sore throat, coughing, sneezing, and fever. Many of these resolve in ten days, but some symptoms last up to three weeks.

What Causes It?

Viral infection may cause this condition. It is more common in cold weather—for example, during the winter season. It can strike in the form of small epidemics.
