What Things Can Cause Rhinosinusitis?

Here is a list of the potential causes of rhinosinusitis (nasal and sinus disorders) that I consider for every patient that I evaluate:

Septal deviation
Structural abnormalities
Side effect from medications
Fungal sinusitis
GERD gastroesophageal reflux disease
Immune deficiency
Ciliary dyskinesia
Behavioral risk factors (Smoking, snorting drugs)
Cystic fibrosis
Endocrinologic disorders
Infections from viruses or bacteria
