  • Chronic rhinitis: a manifestation of leprosy. Ear, nose, & throat journal Camacho, I. D., Burdick, A., Benjamin, L., Casiano, R. 2011; 90 (9): E1-3


    Leprosy, or Hansen disease, is an infection that affects the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract and may manifest with nasal symptoms of chronic rhinitis, including nasal congestion, rhinorrhea, and intermittent epistaxis. We present a case of a woman diagnosed with leprosy as an incidental finding from a biopsy obtained during endoscopic sinus surgery for the management of chronic rhinitis. The diagnosis of leprosy should be considered in patients with nasal symptoms and presumptive chronic rhinitis who do not respond adequately to standard therapies.
