Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Nasal mucocilliary Clearacne (NMCC) was studied in 75 cases of atrophic rhinitis and results were compared with 35 healthy controls using Anderson's method. Olfaction in atrophic rhinitis decreases but its extent has not been studied earlier. We have tried to quantify olfaction. This was normal in 10.6%, mild hyposmia was seen in 30%, severe in 23.33% and anosmia was present in 36%.
