The diagnosis of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) has advanced from a solely side effect driven finding, to requiring fitting indications and proof of aggravation of the paranasal sinuses.

Results: There were 200 patients of allergic polyps which were selected for this study. From these 200 patients there were 96 female and 104 males. The mean age range was 41.2 ± 12.4years.

Conclusion: It is concluded that presence of intraepithelial just as stromal eosinophils likely assumes a function during the time spent rebuilding the mucosa of constant rhinosinusitis with nasal.
