Abstract

Sinonasal infections and nasal polyps can be taken as 2 components of a disease. Polyps due to chronic inflammations of nasal cavity and sinuses are not rare. They may present with various clinical signs and symptoms, while the secondary complications may cause serious problems. They are most commonly treated medically, although surgery is the therapy of choice in some conditions. The complications can be listed as mucocele formation, orbital inflammation, intracranial extension by erosion of the boney structures.
