Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Refractory rhinosinusitis can be related to comorbid medical conditions, including primary immunodeficiency. Given the prevalence of immunodeficiency, clinicians should have a low threshold to consider these diagnoses. This article reviews primary immunodeficiencies contributing to chronic rhinosinusitis, including a proposed diagnostic work-up and the evidence for treatment in this unique population.
