Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Each year allergic rhinitis and rhinosinusitis account for millions of office visits and billions of dollars spent on prescription and nonprescription drugs. Although the causes and symptoms of these two ailments differ, there is evidence that they are linked. The authors explain how effective control of allergy symptoms can reduce the incidence and severity of rhinosinusitis.
