PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Sinus disease impacts millions of Americans every year, with significant associated costs on the healthcare system. Primary care physicians (PCPs) are at the frontline of treatment for patients with sinus disease. Patients would be well served by improved collaboration between PCPs and consulting otolaryngologists. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent years have seen the adoption of new criteria for the diagnosis of sinus disease; however, this remains an often-times difficult diagnosis to make. SUMMARY: The management of sinus disease is a major challenge for PCPs who often manage the majority of patients presenting with sinusitis and related conditions. In this article, it is suggested that patients would be well served by close-working relationships between their PCPs and otolaryngologists.
