Nasal polyp is one of the common diseases which develops in the mucosa of the nasal cavity. The pathogenesis is unknown. Polyp has high recurrence rate after operation. In this study, blood eosinophil count, IgE, prick skin test, computed tomographic scan, and nasal endoscopic findings of 30 patients with recurrent nasal polyposis were reviewed.
The results were as follows:
On PRIST IgE, positive findings were obtained in 6 patients. Five of them were allergic patient.
On skin test, positive reactions were obtained in 5 patients.
On computed tomography, 12 sites were stage I, II sites stage II, 15 sites stage III, and 21 sites stage IV. On operation frequency, 22 patients were received operation once. 5 patients twice, 2 patients three times, and 1 patient 4 times.
On recurrent sites of the endoscopic findings, 41 sites were recurred from the uncinate process, ethmoid bulla, and middle turbinate. 10 sites were from the frontoethmoidal recess and resected margin of the middle turbinate, 5 sites from the superolateral wall of ethmoid cavity, and 3 sites from the superior meatus.
