Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by inflammation of the sinonasal mucosa. The various CRS subtypes are associated with unique etiopathologic mechanisms, which impacts treatment and prognosis. Recalcitrant CRS poses a therapeutic challenge and often requires different treatment strategies along the course of the disease. Medical therapy of CRS is a broad topic, as there are numerous classes of medications targeting the various etiologic factors and disease manifestations.
