Chronic Granulomatous Rhinitis

Granulomatous Rhinitis (chronic)


Presentation

  • Diseases that can present in this manner include autoimmune vasculitis, sarcoidosis, indolent infections, neoplastic processes, and various other miscellaneous conditions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Clinical description CGD can present at any age but is most commonly diagnosed before the age of 5 years.[orpha.net]
  • It may be present only during a specific season, or present year-round with or without periods of worsening. Mechanisms of allergic rhinitis Allergic rhinitis is defined by the presence of antibodies (IgE) which recognize certain allergens.[allerg.qc.ca]
  • Differential Diagnosis Disease/Condition Differentiating Signs/Symptoms Differentiating Tests leukocyte adhesion deficiency type I Classically, patients present in infancy with delayed separation of the umbilical cord, serious recurrent bacterial illness[online.epocrates.com]
  • Other symptoms at the time of presentation include severe nasal congestion/obstruction, sinus pain/pressure, headaches and facial numbness.[aspergillus.org.uk]
Surgical Procedure
  • No specific recommendations exist for the treatment of atrophic rhinitis, but nasal lavage and surgical procedures to reduce the volume of the nasal cavity are effective in some cases.[amboss.com]
Nasal Congestion
  • congestion) Mixed rhinitis Non-allergic nasal rhinitis with eosinophilia Nonallergic rhinitis Non-allergic rhinitis Nonallergic rhinitis with eosinophilia Purulent rhinitis Rhinitis Rhinitis (nasal congestion) Rhinitis (nasal congestion), chronic Rhinitis[icd9data.com]
  • Clinical manifestations of rhinitis include nasal congestion, sneezing, rhinorrhea, and post-nasal drip.[amboss.com]
  • Rhinitis is inflammation of the nasal mucous membrane, with resultant nasal congestion, rhinorrhea, and variable associated symptoms depending on etiology (eg, itching, sneezing, watery or purulent rhinorrhea, anosmia).[merckmanuals.com]
  • Symptoms initially include some nasal congestion and thin nasal discharge, often with a scratchy or sore throat.[my.clevelandclinic.org]
  • Drinking alcoholic beverages also may cause the membranes inside your nose to swell, leading to nasal congestion. Certain medications. Some medications can cause nonallergic rhinitis.[ohioentandallergy.com]
Epistaxis
  • Clinical signs related to Bartonella infection in dogs: Endocarditis Myocarditis Anaemia Hepatitis Polyarthritis Uveitis, choroiditis Weight loss Epistaxis[cvbd.org]
  • Granulomatosis with polyangiitis, known for the triad of respiratory tract granulomas, systemic vasculitis and glomerulonephritis, commonly produces nasal symptoms of crusting, epistaxis and rhinorrhea.[my.clevelandclinic.org]
  • Epistaxis Diagnostics : No specific diagnostic test is indicated. Treatment : No form of treatment can completely eliminate symptoms.[amboss.com]
  • Patients often endure symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis such as sinus pain, nasal discharge, headache (Jhuo, 2011), low-grade fever and intermittent epistaxis. Invasion of the maxillary floor leads to palatal erosions.[aspergillus.org.uk]

Treatment

  • Patients may also benefit from treatment of allergy with immunotherapy (allergy shots or drops) and antihistamines. Anti-fungal treatment is usually not required, as it is the reaction to the fungus that needs to be modulated.[care.american-rhinologic.org]
  • Videos: Choosing Wisely » CGD Treatment & Management The best treatment plan for CGD is to prevent infections from occurring. Special preventative antibiotics are a mainstay of treatment for CGD. These greatly reduce the chances of infection.[aaaai.org]
  • Medical Treatment In order to understand treatment, it is helpful to revisit the poison ivy analogy...[fauquierent.net]
  • Given the great amount of fungi exposures you have, remarkably few fungal infections require medical treatment. However fungal sinus disease does require medications and treatment and increasingly is recognized as a source of chronic sinusitis.[theasthmacenter.org]
  • Treatment includes humidification of room air, sympathomimetic amines, and antihistamines. Bacterial superinfection requires appropriate antibiotic treatment. There are several forms of nonallergic rhinitis.[merckmanuals.com]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis The prognosis has greatly improved with the use of antibacterial and antifungal prophylaxis therapy, with most patients living well into adulthood. The documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only.[orpha.net]
  • Some authors suggested that angioinvasion might be an independent variable that predicts a worse prognosis in chronic invasive fungal rhinosinusitis.[aspergillus.org.uk]
  • Prognosis and treatment [ edit ] It is not lethal in nature and is responsive to tetracycline or ciprofloxacin. Surgical treatment include rhinoplasty.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Because the prognosis is poor, early bone marrow transplantation is strongly recommended for GS-2.[primaryimmune.org]

Etiology

  • Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.[icd10coded.com]
  • Rhinitis is inflammation of the nasal mucous membrane, with resultant nasal congestion, rhinorrhea, and variable associated symptoms depending on etiology (eg, itching, sneezing, watery or purulent rhinorrhea, anosmia).[merckmanuals.com]
  • The etiology is an allergic reaction to pollen or fungal spores. Signs are seasonal and occur under warm, moist conditions; they include rhinorrhea, sneezing, and a sudden onset of dyspnea.[msdvetmanual.com]
  • Classification Allergic rhinitis Definition : acute or chronic rhinitis caused by exposure to an inhaled allergen Etiology Type I hypersensitivity reaction Genetic predisposition to atopy Clinical features Recurrent episodes of sneezing, nasal congestion[amboss.com]
  • Etiology CGD is caused by mutations in any one of the 5 genes encoding the phagocyte nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidase subunits.[orpha.net]

Epidemiology

  • Summary Epidemiology The average worldwide birth prevalence is estimated at 1/ 217,000. Clinical description CGD can present at any age but is most commonly diagnosed before the age of 5 years.[orpha.net]

  • Classification and epidemiology The most recent and widely classification categorized rhinosinusitis as invasive and non-invasive is based on the histopathological findings of the invaded tissue (Deshazo, 1997; Das, 2009).[aspergillus.org.uk]

Prevention

  • Treatment involves prophylactic antibiotics to prevent staphylococcal and fungal infections, and prompt prescription of antibiotics to treat infections. Administration of interferon gamma and bone marrow transplantation may be needed in severe cases.[columbiadoctors.org]

  • Management and treatment Antibacterial and antifungal prophylaxis is essential in preventing the infections seen in CGD. Lifelong daily doses of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (antibacterial) and itraconazole (anti-fungal) are recommended.[orpha.net]
  • Prevention and treatment It is important to enact environmental control measures to avoid the allergens that are causing the problem (see the section on Respiratory allergens ).[allerg.qc.ca]
