Fungal Rhinosinusitis

34 year old female patient with a 2 week history of left nasal congestion and obstruction managed with topical steroids. A rigid nasal endoscopy was performed using a 3.8mm 0 degree endoscope showing a thick white debris that completely occluded the left nasal cavity and seemed to derive from the left medial meatus. You may see in the video grooves in the secretion that were caused to the thick secretion using suction. A culture was taken proving fungal rhinosinusitis. After complete removal we noticed fungal destruction that caused a left maxillary antrostomy. The video on the right shows the patient after treatment.
