Coriza is the flow of rheum especially through the nose, as described above in the entry Catarus. The Greek version of this word is best spelt with "k".


Latin coryza, used by Caelius Aurelianus, is loaned from Greek κόρυζα /kóryza/, itacist /kóriza/, glossed by LSJ "mucous discharge from the nostrils, rheum; running at the nose, inflammatory nasal catarrh".

The word is of uncertain etymology.

Coryza has survived into modern medical terminology defined as "a catarrhal inflammation of the mucous membrane in the nose due to either a cold or hay fever" {Martin (1985)}.
