This book aims to help consumers and practitioners develop the skills to assess health advice – and hopefully to make decisions that will improve the quality of their care.

Antifungal therapy for chronic rhinosinusitis

Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is an extremely common condition. Since fungus has been implicated in the development of CRS, it has been proposed that antifungal therapies may be beneficial in its treatment. As antifungals can be expensive and are associated with side effects, it is imperative that the benefits of this therapy are well‐documented before broadly endorsing it as treatment. This review summarises the evidence for the efficacy of both topical and systemic antifungal therapies in the management of symptoms in CRS. We included six studies with a total of 380 patients in the review. There is no evidence that either topical or systemic antifungal therapies have any benefit over placebo for the symptomatic treatment of CRS and therefore there is no evidence to support their use.
