BACKGROUND: Chronic invasive fungal rhinosinusitis is rare in the immunocompetent patient. Few cases have been published except for in a specific geographic area (Sudan, India). METHODS AND RESULTS: We reported two new cases of chronic invasive fungal rhinosinusitis due to Aspergillus, which was successfully treated, to analyze the different clinical, radiological, and mycological criteria. CONCLUSION: Through these two new clinical cases and the analysis of the literature, we suggested, in the absence of general agreement on the surgical and medical management, the current strategies available for this rare pathology. New antifungal drugs seem to be an efficient alternative to classic antifungal agents, especially those that require an extended course of oral therapy for the chronic invasive form.
