Abstract:
Fungus-like sinusitis. Fungus-like sinusitis is also called eosinophilic mucin rhinosinusitis (EMRS). This ter- minology is purely descriptive and refers to a rhinosinusitis, whose clinical presentation and imaging are similar to those of a noninvasive fungal sinusitis but in which fungus could not be demonstrated pathologically using the conventional silver staining technique or on culture. The authors report 2 clinical cases and recall the diagnostic criteria for the different forms of fungal sinusitis in immuno- competent patients.
