Abstract: 

In this paper, we present data on the prevalence of sinusitis and its relationship to bronchial asthma among asthmatic patients ranging from 2-16 years. Sinusitis was observed in 52 of 71 patients (73/2%) and the maxillary sinus was the most common involved sinus. The most common finding in waters x-ray was mucosal wall thickening greater than 6 mm .38/5% of patients with sinusitis had never symptom or sign of sinusitis. The most common symptom in asthmatic patients with sinusitis was constant purulent nasal discharge. We did not find statistical difference between asthmatic patient with or without sinusitis with regard to severity of asthma and hospital admission p>0.05. We suggest that antibiotic therapy for sinusitis should be given only to asthmatics patients when not response to usual treatment and obvious signs of sinusitis, because the abnormal finding in the waters x-Ray in asthmatic patients may be due of chronic hyperplastic eosinophilic sinusitis (CHS).
