[Clinical features and treatment of polypous rhinosinusitis combined with allergic diseases].Vestn Otorinolaringol. 2003VO
140 patients of ENT-clinic and 484 patients of immunological clinic with nasal and paranasal polyposis were examined to characterize clinical features and therapeutic policy in polypous rhinosinusitis (PRS) in various allergic pathology. PRS was frequently associated with allergic diseases (allergic rhinitis, bronchial asthma, aspirin intolerance, atopic dermatitis, asthmatic triad). This allows considering PRS as a particular manifestation of general allergic pathology. Therapeutic policy consists in selection of basic therapy of the underlying (allergic) disease, management of chronic infection, adequate examination of the patients and individual selection of drugs in preoperative preparation and postoperative management of patients.
