Rhinology is the study of nose, paranasal sinus, and nasopharynx. The nose is the most prominent structure on the human face and has been a subject of study since ancient human civilization. The history of rhinology has reflected the sociocultural aspects of the times, and rhinology has achieved remarkable growth with innovative discoveries by numerous pioneers. The focus of surgical procedures of the paranasal sinus shifted from mucosal stripping to functional endoscopic surgery with advancement of technology. Furthermore, the field of rhinology is gradually expanding due to cutting-edge technologies such as image-guided surgery, three-dimensional endoscopy, and robotic surgery. Additional clinical experiences and technological developments are expected to further advance rhinology.
