Donghyuk Im, Young Soo Yang, Hye Rang Choi, Kyujin Han, Seok-Chan Hong, Jae Hoon Cho, Jin Kook Kim
2018 Korean Journal of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery  
For the anosmia category by KVSS II, the ECRS group showed significantly improved olfactory function test scores for the threshold, discrimination, and identification tests.  ...  Seventy five patients were classified into eosinophilic CRS (ECRS) and non-ECRS groups.  ...  The involvement of NPs in either the ethmoid sinus or OC was more frequent in the ECRS group which produced a greater effect on conductive olfactory dysfunction.  ...
