Nasal polyposis


Specialty of Allergy & Immunology

Nasal polyps or nasal polyps are some benign tumors that form on the inside of the nose or sinuses by inflammation of the mucosa. The cause of polyps is unknown, but is associated with allergies, asthma, sinusitis or cystic fibrosis. Polyps are the size of a grape and can completely block the nasal passages, resulting in the inability to patient breathing, loss of smell and taste, headache and nasal deformities. Treatment with medications such as steroid nasal sprays, tablets corticosteroids or antibiotics, only helps relieve the symptoms of nasal polyposis. Polyps can be removed by surgery endoscopically, but in many cases recur over time.
