Abstract

Surgical removal of allergic fungal mucin is the main stay of treatment. Recurrence rate
following functional endoscopic surgery found to be more, which made the introduction of
post-operative adjunctive therapy. Medical therapy includes systemic and topical steroids,
systemic and topical antifungals and immunotherapy. Steroid is considered as standard
medical treatment for AFRS. It reduces the recurrence along with reduction in mucosal
changes and systemic IgElevels. But long term use of steroids causes unavoidable systemic
toxicity.Our study intends to compare the efficacy of steroid and Itraconazole in
preventing recurrence in patients with AFRS in post- operativeperiod.

Key words: Steroids, Itraconazole, Allergic, Fungal, Rhinosinusitis
