Background and purpose: Chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS) as a common disease has different clinical signs and symptoms. In the recent decades only a few local signs and symptoms of CRS are included in its diagnostic criteria while many important ones seem to have been missed out. Considering the very close compatibility of CRS with “Nazlah” and “Zokam” in the manuscripts of Persian Medicine, we reviewed some signs, symptoms and consequences of CRS in the main literatures of both modern medicine and Persian Medicine in order to suggest a more comprehensive diagnostic perspective.
Materials and methods: This study reviewed medical databases and main manuscripts of Persian Medicine using English, Arabic, and Farsi keywords including chronic rhinosinusitis, Nazlah, and Zokam with no time limitation. Data were then compared, interpreted, and analyzed.
Results: Studying the data available showed that a wide range of signs, symptoms, and consequences are ob observable served in CRS. The complexity of clinical features of CRS versus the current linear understanding of it, has led up to some difficulties to design a final framework for defining and semiologic description of CRS.
Conclusion: Reducing the CRS diagnostic criteria just to some of its local nasosinusal features may cause diagnostic ignorance of a wide spectrum of patients whose nasosinusal appearances are not so obvious while having other problems outside the organ. So we suggest a more comprehensive approach to recognize CRS through considering both local and general signs and symptoms for a better and more qualitative treatment.
