Although not a serious disease, nasal polyposis often affects the lifestyle of those who suffer from it.

So-called nasal polypsosis is a common disorder of the nose. These are soft bags that block the nasal cavities, preventing normal breathing, as well as the perception of odors.

The roots of the polyps lie in the paranasal sinuses.


The diagnosis is based on clinical examinations and specialist examinations, such as:

  • rhinoscopic examination: for visualizing the nasal polyps;
  • nasal endoscopic examination: painless, for exploring the most hidden regions of the nose;
  • TAC of facial mass: for evaluating the extent of the disease;
  • magnetic resonance: for excluding the presence of morbid states;
  • Pneumologic control: occurs if the patient has pulmonary asthma disorders, often with nasal polyps.
sinusite cronica

chronic sinusitis

Sinusitis is inflammation of the paranasal sinuses that is visible through a TAC examination. Its chronic form is due to the existence of irreversible damage within the ventilation channels of the paranasal sinuses.

Chronic sinusitishas alternates periods of exacerbation, where the patient at times experiences symptoms, followed by quiescent periods during which, apparently, the disorder seems to have been healed.


Sinusitis occurs where the organs are connected to the nose, especially the ear and bronchi. Usually, patients experience recurrent bronchitis and coughing, or inflammation in the middle ear resulting in deafness.
