Fungal Sinusitis: Current Trends in Diagnosis and Treatment

In This Article


Our understanding of fungal sinusitis continues to grow. Increased physician awareness and technological advances in radiology make the diagnosis of fungal sinusitis increasingly more common. The clinician must maintain a high index of suspicion to diagnose this disorder, which can masquerade as more common ailments. A thorough approach with directed history-taking and physical examination combined with computed tomography and nasal endoscopy continue to improve our ability to diagnose each type of fungal sinusitis. As advances are made in functional endoscopic sinus surgery, our ability to treat and eradicate fungal sinus disease continues to improve. Future research should lead to further advances in the medical and surgical treatment of fungal sinusitis.
