Abstract

Allergic fungal rhinosinusitis is a relatively newly characterized disease entity that commands a great deal of interest. Large amounts of information are being generated addressing the underlying etiology of the disease, its clinical presentation, and forms of treatment. Although controversy still exists, recent evidence supports the theory that AFRS represents an immunologic, rather than infectious, disease process. An improved understanding of this underlying disease process has led to an evolution in the treatment of AFRS.
