Granulomatous rhinitis: 

Granulomatous rhinitis is a type of chronic inflammatory condition that affects the nasal passages. It is characterized by the formation of granulomas, which are clusters of immune cells that form in response to persistent inflammation.


The causes of granulomatous rhinitis are:

  • Infections, such as tuberculosis or fungal infections
  • Allergic reactions
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Chronic irritation from inhaling foreign objects, such as industrial dusts or chemicals


The symptoms of granulomatous rhinitis include:

  • Persistent nasal congestion and obstruction
  • Recurrent sinusitis
  • Postnasal drip
  • Loss of smell or taste
  • Facial pain or pressure
  • Chronic cough


The diagnosis of granulomatous rhinitis is made through a combination of:

  • Physical examination and medical history review
  • Nasal endoscopy
  • Allergy testing
  • CT scan or MRI of the sinuses
  • Biopsy of nasal tissue to confirm granuloma formation
