Özet

Background: Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid [ASA]) hypersensitivity is frequent in patients with nasal polyps (NPs) and is called aspirin exacerbated respiratory disease, previously known as Samter's syndrome. However, studies evaluating the prevalence of ASA hypersensitivity in patients with NPs using the oral aspirin provocation test (APT) are quite limited. This study was designed to determine the prevalence of ASA hypersensitivity and factors associated with ASA hypersensitivity in patients with NPs.
