    The etiology of nasal polyposis is still unknown, although risk factors include Aspirin intolerance, asthma, cystic fibrosis and primary ciliary dyskinesia. We studied frequencies of HLA A, B, DR and DQ in patients with nasal polyposis in order to determine a possible genetic component in the...

    Introduction: Nasal polyposis is the most common mass lesions in the nose. It has been shown that it reduces quality of life, it has characteristically frequent recurrences. Objectives: of this study is to evaluate the outcome of chronic sinusitis with nasal polyposis (CRS with nasal polyposis)...

    Background: Eosinophils are possibly the most important inflammatory cells in the pathogenesis of rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis. Eosinophil degranulation is the mechanism by which these cells exert their inflammatory action. Knowledge of eosinophil state and degranulation mode therefore...
