The nose and lungs have both histological and functional similarities and differences. Sinonasal and bronchial involvement are associated in many diseases. Cystic fibrosis, primary ciliary dyskinesia, Young's syndrome, and alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency are diseases in which bronchiectasis and rhinosinusitis are both present. This review considers the diseases in which bronchiectasis occurs along with sinonasal manifestations. We propose examining sinonasal disease from a new perspective by observing it in patients with bronchiectasis.
