Invasive Fungal Rhinosinusitis: A Brief Review

June 25, 2021 Medicine and Medical Science 0

The term “fungal rhinosinusitis” refers to a fungal infection of the nose and paranasal sinuses. Fungal rhinosinusitis refers to a wide range of fungal infections characterized by a broad spectrum of immune and pathological responses that range from simply irritating the sinuses (allergic fungal sinusitis) to rapidly fatal disease (invasive fungal rhinosinusitis). Similarly, based on pathophysiology and presentation, fungal sinusitis has been classified as noninvasive or invasive. Spectrum of Symptoms can range from simple rhinosinusitis to significant morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. There has been much discussion and publication on classifications, terminology management, early clinical suspicion, diagnosis, and timely medical and surgical intervention that has proven beneficial. Given the current Covid-19 scenario and its association with fungal rhinosinusitis in clinical practice, we intend to review the classification and current management strategies using the most recent literature.
