Abstract: 

Objective: the aim of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of nasal mucosal contact point in rhinology patients and association between contact point and sinunasal symptoms.
Subjects and Methods: We compare the sinunasal problem and contact point (endoscopic & imaging) in 59 patients without (sever septal deviation, chorneal hypertrophy. large ethmoid bula and paradox turbinate) by fisher aaaaaaaa7 chi square test and review the literature.
Results: The prevalence of nasal mucosal contact point in our study is 13.6 percent; there is no association between contact point and patient s symptom such as headache, facial pain, nasal blockage.
Conclusion: Nasal mucosal contact point occurs between the septum and structure of the lateral nasal wall and contact point can be visualized either endoscopically or radiologically on CT scan. The nasal mucosal contact point in the physiological status of the nose is best detected on CT scan of paranasal sinus. As we found no association with headache, facial pain and nasal blockage and contact point, it appears unlikely that surgery is relieving these symptoms permanently by relief of contact points.
