Acute upper respiratory tract infection

Acute upper respiratory tract infection is called Shanggan for short, also known as the common cold. It is a general term including acute inflammation of nasal cavity, pharynx or throat. In a broad sense, Shanggan is not a disease diagnosis, but a group of diseases, including common cold, viral pharyngitis, laryngitis, herpetic angina, pharyngeal conjunctival fever and bacterial pharyngeal tonsillitis. Narrow sense of upper taste, also known as the common cold, is the most common acute respiratory infectious disease. It is mostly self limiting, but the incidence is high. Adults occur 2-4 times a year, and children have a higher incidence, 6-8 times a year. It can occur throughout the year, with more in winter and spring.
