BACKGROUND Collection of nasal secretions is important for the evaluation of upper airways inflammation in many nasal disorders. OBJECTIVE To study the validity and reproducibility of nasal secretion cellularity induced by nebulization of hypertonic solution in patients with allergic rhinitis (AR), patients with nonallergic rhinitis with eosinophilia syndrome (NARES), and control subjects. METHODS Sixty-eight individuals (29 with AR [mean +/- SD age, 33.3 +/- 16.9 years], 23 with NARES… CONTINUE READING
