Rhinitis and rhinosinusitis are the two major clinical entities of chronic upper airway disease. Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and allergic rhinitis (AR) affect respectively up to 10 and 30% of the total population, hence being associated with an important socio-economic burden. Different phenotypes of rhinitis and CRS have been described based on symptom severity and duration, atopy status, level of control, comorbidities and presence or absence of nasal polyps in CRS. The underlying pathophysiological mechanisms are diverse, with different, and sometimes overlapping, endotypes being recognized...

BACKGROUND: Chronic rhinosinusitis with and without nasal polyps (CRSw/sNP) are common conditions decreasing health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Individual symptoms capable of predicting outcome after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) are poorly defined, and the indirect costs of CRS is rarely reported in Europe. METHODOLOGY: Patients with CRSw/sNP admitted for ESS were prospectively enrolled. Patients completed the 22 Sinonasal Outcome Test (SNOT-22), the short-form 36-item questionnaire (SF-36), a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and reported CRS-related absenteeism pre- and post-operatively...

BACKGROUND: Distinguishing eosinophilic nasal polyps (NP) from noneosinophilic NP will impact prognosis and therapeutic responsiveness. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the ability of clinical history and biomarkers to distinguish these conditions. METHODS: A total of 74 consecutive patients undergoing surgery for NP were enrolled. Clinical presentations were evaluated using the 22-item sinonasal outcome test (SNOT-22). Biomarkers included absolute eosinophil count, IgE, and extent of tissue hyperplasia on sinus computed tomography scan...

OBJECTIVES: Direct comparison of different diseases allows clinicians and researchers to place the burden of symptoms and impact on quality of life of each condition in context. Generic health-related quality-of-life assessment tools allow such analysis, and limited data are available for British patients with chronic rhinosinusitis. DESIGN: As part of a larger feasibility study, patients underwent baseline assessment using the SNOT-22, SF-12 and EQ-5D-5L tools...

BACKGROUND: Asthma with incomplete reversibility of airway obstruction (IRAO) may often be associated to smoking-induced changes. Nevertheless, a high proportion of patients showing IRAO have never smoked. These patients with IRAO often share features of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Although IRAO is still a poorly defined condition, it has been associated with a higher morbidity and mortality than asthma with complete reversibility of airway obstruction (CRAO) or even COPD alone...

BACKGROUND: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a highly prevalent inflammatory condition, with significant effects on morbidity and quality of life. Given that other chronic inflammatory conditions have been associated with increased mortality risk, we sought to evaluate the relationship between mortality and CRS including the influence of asthma. Our objective was to determine if CRS, with or without asthma, is associated with altered risk of mortality. METHODS: Using a statewide population database, we retrospectively identified 27,005 patients diagnosed with CRS between 1996 and 2012, and 134,440 unaffected controls matched 5:1 on birth year and sex...

BACKGROUND: Chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps is characterized by TH2-biased eosinophilic inflammation. Eosinophils have been shown to generate so-called extracellular eosinophilic traps (EETs) under similar pathologic conditions. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to investigate a possible link between EET formation and the presence of Staphylococcus aureus, an organism frequently colonizing the upper airways, at the human mucosal site of the disease. METHODS: Tissue slides were investigated for the presence of EETs and S aureus by using immunofluorescent staining and the PNA-Fish assay, respectively...

INTRODUCTION: Computed Tomography (CT) plays an important diagnostic role in patients with sinonasal diseases and determines the treatment. The CT images clearly show fine structural architecture of bony anatomy thereby determining various anatomical variation, extent of disease and characterization of various inflammatory, benign and malignant sinonasal diseases. AIM: To evaluate sensitivity and specificity of CT in diagnosis of sinonasal diseases and to characterise the benign and malignant lesions with the help of various CT parameters...

OBJECTIVE: Eosinophilic chronic rhinosinusitis (ECRS), a subgroup of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps, is a refractory disease closely associated with bronchial asthma. We recently reported on the efficacy of ultra-fine particle inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) (hydrofluoroalkane-134a-beclomethasone dipropionate: HFA-BDP) exhalation through the nose (ETN) treatment for mild-to-moderate asthmatics with ECRS. However, the effect of HFA-BDP ETN was found to be transient in some cases with severe ECRS and asthma, requiring treatment with higher-dose ICS and long-acting β2-agonists (LABA)...

Chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) is an inflammatory condition with heterogeneous pathophysiology. A cornerstone of the management of this condition is the use of anti-inflammatory agents. Corticosteroids are very effective and the most commonly used, but other drugs with immunodulatory activity such as anti-IL5, doxycycline (Th2), and macrolides (anti-neutrophilic/IL8) have been shown to have efficacy. Although systemic corticosteroids have shown benefit in managing this condition, the frequency of use often required in this condition is associated with significant adverse effects...

BACKGROUND: The role of atopy in chronic rhinosinusitis is unclear: it is particularly controversial in chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps. METHODS: A prospective study of 210 patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps was performed. Patient demographics, visual analogue scale scores, Lund-Kennedy endoscopy scores, Lund-Mackay computed tomography scores, serum total immunoglobulin E levels, serum eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) levels and Phadiatop test findings were analysed...

We present an overview of the modern literature concerningpolypous rhinosinusitis (PRS) in the children. The information thus derived is compared with the available results of the clinical investigations involving the adults patients with this pathology. Allergic diseases and mucoviscidosis appear to be the pathological conditions most likely leading to the development of polyps in the nasal cavity. The patients suffering from rhinosinusitis associated with the disorders of arachidonic acid metabolismare very rarely encountered in the pediatric practice unlike those among the adult population...

BACKGROUND: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is defined as a condition of inflammation in the paranasal sinus mucosa persisting for more than 12 weeks. We previously reported that the prevalence of CRS was about 8 % in China. Here, we aim to investigate the occupational and environmental risk factors associated with CRS. METHODS: Data were collected from seven Chinese cities: Urumqi, Changchun, Beijing, Wuhan, Chengdu, Huaian and Guangzhou. CRS was diagnosed according to the European Position Paper on Rhinosinusitis and Nasal Polyps (EP(3)OS) document...

Woakes' syndrome is characterised by severe recurrent nasal polyps in early childhood with broadening of the nose, nasal dyscrinia, frontal sinus aplasia and bronchiectasis. Eosinophilic otitis media (EOM) is an intractable condition that can cause gradual or sudden deterioration of hearing and is associated with comorbid asthma. For these reasons, both diseases must be recognised and treated appropriately. We present a case of a 20-year-old man with Woakes' syndrome complicated by EOM, with polyps in both middle ears; this condition has so far not been described as an entity of eosinophilic disease in the literature...

BACKGROUND: Urinary leukotriene E4 (LTE4) is a well-validated marker of the cysteinyl leukotriene pathway, and LTE4 elevation has been described in conditions such as asthma, aspirin sensitivity, and chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). There have been a number of reports investigating the role of spot urine LTE4 to predict aspirin sensitivity; however, variability in urinary LTE4 may affect the accuracy of this approach. OBJECTIVE: Here, we explored the utility of 24-hour urinary LTE4 in 5 clinical diagnoses of allergic rhinitis, asthma, chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP), CRS without nasal polyps, and aspirin sensitivity...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we aimed to clarify the prognostic factors affecting the ethmoid condition during a long-term follow-up after endoscopic sinus surgery in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP). METHODS: Thirty-six patients with CRSwNP underwent surgery from December 2008 to February 2012. All surgeries were performed by one surgeon, and all patients were followed up for at least 2 years postoperatively. We investigated the association of postoperative endoscopic findings with clinical parameters, mucosal eosinophil count and mRNA expression of CCL11, IL-5, and IFN-gamma in nasal polyps...
