BACKGROUND Nasal polyps (NPs) are characterized by eosinophilic inflammation, which is generally considered sensitive to corticosteroid treatment. OBJECTIVES We evaluated levels of neutrophilia in NPs and investigated whether increased neutrophilia in polyp tissue affected the response to corticosteroid treatment. METHODS We studied 3 independent cross-sectional groups of patients with NPs. Levels of infiltration by different types of inflammatory cells were determined by using… CONTINUE READING
