Orphan diseases of the nose and paranasal sinuses: Pathogenesis - clinic - therapy.

Rare rhinological diseases are a diagnostic challenge. Sometimes it takes months or even years from the primary manifestation of the disease until the definitive diagnosis is establibshed. During these times the disease proceeds in an uncontrolled or insufficiently treated way. (Irreversible) damage results and sometimes life-threatening situations occur. The unexpected course of a (misdiagnosed) disease should lead to further diagnostic reflections and steps in order to detect also rare diseases as early as possible. The present paper discusses granulomatous diseases of the nose and paranasal sinuses caused by mycobacteria, treponema, Klebsiella, fungi, and protozoa as well as vasculitis, sarcoidosis, rosacea, cocaine-induced midline destruction, nasal extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma, and cholesterol granuloma. Furthermore, diseases with disorders of the mucociliary clearance such as primary ciliary dyskinesia and cystic fibrosis are presented, taking into consideration the current literature.
