    Background: It is important to differentiate sinonasal fungus ball from non-fungal sinusitis and other forms of fungal sinusitis in order to determine the optimal treatment. In particular, a sinonasal fungus ball, a noninvasive fungal sinusitis, can be characterized by radiologic findings before...
