Chronic sinusitis with eosinophils easily recurs after endoscopic sinus surgery. The condition is usually complicated by asthma, and many eosinophils are present in the sinus mucosa. One conservative treatment method is the administration of glucocorticoids locally or systematically. To evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of intranasal fluticasone propionate for the treatment of chronic sinusitis with eosinophils, seven patients with chronic sinusitis with eosinophils were treated over a 12-week period using a fluticasone propionate aqueous nasal spray (800μg per day in each nostrilz). The Symptons of 7 patients, especially nasal discharge and nasal obstructions, improved and an expanded air space was observed on paranasal CT images. The percent of drug systemically available after intranasal administration varied by less than 1% for intranasal fluticasone propionate. Therefore, even if intranasal fluticasone propionate is administerved at double the usual dose, it is unlikely to cause systemic side effects. Fluticasone propionate aqueous nasal spray at double the usual dose is effective for the treatment of chronic sinusitis with eosinophils.
