In brief: The nose

Ent, ear nose and throat, otorhinolaryngologist --if you remove the nose , rhino is left out.

In brief: No difference

Otorhinolaryngologist translated means ear, nose, & throat .
Our specialty is "burdened" by the curse of having a very long name . Thus, most of us in this specialty have adopted the shorter version of otolaryngologist , although all of us are trained in all three areas of this specialty and more. We do head & neck surgery and facial plastic surgery. . Bottom line = no difference.
