    Abstract : Rhinosinusitis is defined as an inflammatory process involving the mucosa of the nose and one or more of the paranasal sinuses. The aims of the work presented in this thesis were to investigate the degree to which rhinosinusitis affects the health-related quality of life (HRQOL), and to determine whether the diagnosis of this condition can be improved using Doppler ultrasound.

    Abstract : ABSTRACT Chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP) is characterized by long-term inflammation of the paranasal sinuses combined with bilateral glassy protuberances from the middle meatus of the nasal cavity. This disease has an unknown cause, affects roughly 3% of the population and causes symptoms from the upper airways. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetics of complex disease

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Biology
