MetadataShow full item record
Upper respiratory disorders such as allergic rhinitis and rhinosinusitis are different facets of a larger systemic inflammatory syndrome involving both the upper and lower airways. Effective treatment of sinonasal disease, which is one of the factors that exacerbate asthma, may also improve and stabilize the asthmatic condition. Patients with persistent asthma should be searched for otorhinolaryngologic disorders. The aim of this study was to determine whether there is a an association between asthma and otolaryngologic disorders.
