  • Nasal septum deviation
    Nasal septum deviation or deviated nasal septum (DNS) is a physical disorder of the nose, involving a displacement of the nasal septum.
  • Rhinophyma
    Rhinophyma is a condition causing development of a large, bulbous, ruddy nose associated with granulomatous infiltration, commonly due to untreated rosacea.
  • Common cold

  • Inverted papilloma
    An inverted papilloma is a type of tumor in which surface epithelial cells grow downward into the underlying supportive tissue.
  • Post-nasal drip
    Post-nasal drip (PND, also termed upper airway cough syndrome, UACS, or post nasal drip syndrome, PNDS) occurs when excessive mucus is produced by the nasal mucosa.
  • Fungal sinusitis
    Fungal sinusitis is the inflammation of the lining mucosa of the paranasal sinuses.
  • Rhinitis medicamentosa
    Rhinitis medicamentosa (or RM) is a condition of rebound nasal congestion brought on by extended use of topical decongestants (e.g., oxymetazoline, phenylephrine, xylometazoline, and naphazoline nasal sprays) and certain oral medications (e.g., sympathomimetic amines and various 2-imidazolines) that constrict blood vessels in the lining of the nose.
  • Nasal septum perforation
    A nasal septum perforation is a medical condition in which the nasal septum, the cartilaginous membrane dividing the nostrils, develops a hole or fissure.
