Overview

Sore throat was first described in the literature as 'some variants of sore throat' in the year 1879 by R. L. Bowles, M.D., in the British Medical Journal.[1]

Historical Perspective

  • Sore throat was first described in the literature as 'some variants of sore throat' in the year 1879 by R. L. Bowles, M.D., in the British Medical Journal.[1]
  • Later, in the Winter of 1885, David Newman, M.D., described pathology, symptoms and treatment of pharyngitis in his lectures at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary.[2]
  • In 1910, Dr. Donelan illustrated the importance of bacteriological tests in doubtful cases of pharyngitis.[3]
  • In 1931, WM. W. PRIDDLE, B.A., M.D., described three case reports and inferred that chronic non-tuberculous bronchial disease such as influenza, whooping cough, and measles are associated with a chronic nasopharyngitis and also described the importance of conservative treatment in chronic nasopharyngitis.[4]
