Abstract

Study of 30 cases of nasal polyps was conducted at E.N.T Unit 1 of Mayo Hospital Lahore from February 1994 to September 1995 with an aim to identify possible causes of nasal polyps in our population. Majority of the patients were male (77 %) and the median age of presentation was 42 years. Infection of nose and paranasal sinuses was found in 7 patients (23 %) while allergy was found to be the cause in 10 patients (33 %). Rest of the 13 patients (43%) was found to have vasomotor rhinitis. This study signifies the importance of vasomotor rhinitis in the etiology of nasal polyps.
