Answer

For a patient with chronic sinusitis, use the same criteria for diagnosis as used for ABPA and ABPM listed above.

CT scans and sinus radiographs are needed on a regular basis.

Treatment should include sinus surgery and a prolonged course of an oral corticosteroid. If improvement occurs, a trial of a corticosteroid nasal spray to replace the oral steroid is appropriate.

Follow-up visits should occur every 3 months.
