The incidence and prevalence of rhinosinusitis or sinusitis in increasing and health officials want more research to be done on the condition and guidelines need to be established about what pharmacologic, immunologic and surgical treatments should be used. A recent consensus has established the main types of sinusitis: acute presumed bacterial rhinosinusitis, chronic rhinosinusitis without polyps, chronic rhinosinusitis with polyps and classic allergic fungal rhinosinusitis. About 31 million people develop the condition annually. Sinusitis can be caused by a virus, bacteria, fungus, allergy or other reasons.
