Abstract

Allergic rhinitis, rhinosinusitis, and otitis media are among the most common health problems encountered in general practice. Although frequently trivialized, they affect the quality of life, represent a significant socioeconomic burden, and are associated with some serious complications. In addition, allergic rhinitis, rhinosinusitis, and otitis media are often considered as comorbidities. These disorders involve an inflammatory process of the respiratory mucosa of the nose, paranasal sinuses, or middle ear. Because of their well-known anti-inflammatory effects, the role of glucocorticosteroids in the management of these three disorders has been questioned, evaluated, and, in some cases, established. © 2005 Elsevier Inc.
