Virendra Singh

J Maxillofac Oral Surg 2019 Jun 28;18(2):164-179. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Department of Oral and maxillofacial Surgery, PGIDS, Pt. BD Sharma University of Health Sciences, Rohtak, Haryana 124001 India.

Fungal rhinosinusitis (FRS), once considered a rare disease, has seen a steep rise in incidence in recent times. This global rise in the burden of fungal disease is a consequence of an increment in the population with weakened immune systems. Increased life expectancy with rise in conditions like diabetes mellitus, medical advancements with invasive interventions, use of immunosuppressive drugs and chemo-radiotherapy all lead to unique risk situations.

Background: Maxillary sinusitis of odontogenic origin, also known as maxillary sinusitis of dental origin or odontogenic maxillary sinusitis (OMS), is a common disease in dental, otorhinolaryngologic, allergic, general, and maxillofacial contexts. Despite being a well-known disease entity, many cases are referred to otorhinolaryngologists by both doctors and dentists. Thus, early detection and initial diagnosis often fail to detect its odontogenic origin. Read More

McGovern Medical School at the University of Texas Health Science Center, Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, Houston, TX 77030, USA.

Studying the pathophysiology of allergic fungal rhinosinusitis (AFRS) has proved challenging. While this clinical entity is easily distinguishable based on the clinical criteria set forth by Bent and Kuhn twenty-five years ago, studies examining type 2 inflammatory profiles in AFRS can make it seem more alike other CRS subtypes than it is different. Still, evolving research seems to clearly delineate this subtype from others in CRS. Read More

WITHDRAWN: Topical and systemic antifungal therapy for the symptomatic treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2018 09 5;9:CD008263. Epub 2018 Sep 5.

St Vincent's Clinical School, St Vincent's Hospital, 806/438 Victoria St, Darlinghurst, Sydney, Australia, NSW 2010.

Background: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is an inflammatory disorder of the nose and sinuses. Since fungi were postulated as a potential cause of CRS in the late 1990s, there has been increasing controversy about the use of both topical and systemic antifungal agents in its management. Although interaction between the immune system and fungus has been demonstrated in CRS, this does not necessarily imply that fungi are the cause of CRS or that antifungals will be effective its management.

[Allergic fungal rhinosinusitis: A diagnosis to evoke].

Presse Med 2018 Jul - Aug;47(7-8 Pt 1):625-638. Epub 2018 Jul 21.

Radiologie neuro-ORL et ostéo-articulaire, hôpital Edouard-Herriot, pavillon B, 5, place d'Arsonval, 69437 Lyon cedex 03, France.

Among fungal infections of the nasal sinuses, allergic fungal rhinosinusitis is a recently described, relatively rare and little known pathology. Its diagnosis is based on: clinical criteria (it occurs in young immunocompetent patients, often associated with bilateral nasosinusal polyposis); pathological criteria (allergic mucin: eosinophilic mucus without invasion of the sinusal mucosa and observation of fungal hyphae on surgical samples); biological criteria (hypereosinophilia, total and specific antifungal IgE); and radiological criteria. The combination of tomodensitometry (heterogeneous hyperdense and diffuse filling of nasosinusal cavities with expanded borders and a distended appearance of the bony wall), and MRI scan (extensive character and lesional signal [hypo and asignal T1 and T2], and cerebriform aspect of the fungal process) strongly suggests the diagnosis.

Endocannabinoid receptor CB2R is significantly expressed in aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease: a pilot study.

Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 2018 10 13;8(10):1184-1189. Epub 2018 Jun 13.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA.

Background: The endocannabinoid system represents a highly conserved, innate signaling network with direct and indirect control of eicosanoid-mediated inflammation. Activation of the type 2 cannabinoid receptor (CB2R) leads to decreased type 2 inflammation and reduced production of arachidonic acid (AA). Given that altered AA metabolism is associated with aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD), we hypothesized that expression of the CB2R gene CNR2 is increased in AERD. Read More

Distinguishing Molecular Features of Allergic Fungal Rhinosinusitis.

Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2018 Jul 27;159(1):185-193. Epub 2018 Mar 27.

1 Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, McGovern Medical School at the University of Texas Health Science Center, Houston, Texas, USA.

Objective Allergic fungal rhinosinusitis (AFRS) is a clinical subtype of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP), characterized by eosinophilic mucin, evidence of fungal elements within the mucin, fungal-specific type I hypersensitivity, and characteristic computed tomography findings. It remains controversial whether AFRS represents a disease with a unique pathophysiology from chronic rhinosinusitis or is merely a severe form of CRSwNP. The goal of this study was to identify molecular features unique to AFRS. Read More

Department of Microbiology, University College of Medical Sciences (University of Delhi) and Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital, Delhi 110095, India; Research and Scientific Studies Unit, College of Nursing & Allied Health Sciences, Jazan University, Jazan 45142, Saudi Arabia. Electronic address:

Interleukin-17 producing T helper (Th17) and regulatory T cells (Treg) cells have been identified to play a critical role in atopic inflammation. However, conflicting reports on the role of Th17/Treg cells in allergic fungal rhinosinusitis (AFRS) patients of different ethnicities has mystified its pathogenesis. To better understand the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in AFRS, we conducted a prospective, analytical, case-control study involving 40 confirmed immunocompetent AFRS patients and 20 healthy controls.
