Paper Abstract

The many and complicated causes of mucosal pathology in chronic naso-sinusitis have been reported during the past 30 years. Great importance is attributed to the sinus ostium, mucociliary function, turbinate pathology and charactristics of sinus secretion. Owing to such inflammatory foctors as shown in Figure 1, there is offen an occluded natural ostium of allergy, trauma or swelled mucosa in the nasal cavity. A blocked ostium facilitates transdation and secretion originated in the sinus mucosa and, consequently, microorganism invation or growth can then take place.
