Ashirbad Jena and Santosh Kumar Swain
Rhinosinusitis is an inflammation of the nose and paranasal air sinuses. Acute viral rhino sinusitis often referred to as common cold is the commonest viral infection in man and commonest inflammatory disorder encountered. 102 cases of chronic Rhinosinusitis were selected from those attending the ENT Outpatient Department and admitted indoors from July 2016 to Oct 2017. The incidence of acute and chronic sinusitis was 16.4% and 83.6% respectively. Most commonly affected were of age group 21-30 with incidence of 38.2%, Male predominance was seen with 67.6%.
