Abstract

Patients with inflammatory disorders of the upper airway exhibit varying degrees of ANS dysfunction, including the sympathetic, parasympathetic,and sensory components. Current evidence is insufficient with regard to the exact role of ANS dysfunction and its relationship to these disorders.Thus, the interaction of the ANS and sinonasal inflammation deserves further study.
