Happy birthday, Prof. Tato. (Editorial).

On July 18, 2002, Prof. Dr. Juan Manuel Tato was honored by a ceremony commemorating his 100th birthday during the XIII Semana Nacional de Lucha contra la Sordera in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Although we were unable to attend, we were there in our thoughts. Prof. Tato has been a member of the International Board of Editors of the EAR, NOSE & THROAT JOURNAL since December 1992.

I have known Prof. Tato for 35 years, and he always remains active in medical affairs. His appearance has remained almost the same as the day we first met. He continues to attend medical meetings and has had a great influence on otolaryngology, science, politics, and education. He was an instigator of the Neuroequilibriometric Society, and the Tato-Claussen Award for clinical achievement bears his name.

Only a few otolaryngologists have been as durable as Prof. Tato. He embraces new concepts and asks probing questions. To keep an active, busy mind seems to be a good prescription for excellent health and for becoming a centenarian.

Happy birthday, Prof. Tato.
