Acute rhinosinusitis is a common primary care presentation. It presents due to mucosal inflammation and reduced mucociliary function of the nose and paranasal sinuses. Antibiotic therapy is common, however, the vast majority of cases are not bacterial.
This KISS covers the aetiology, diagnosis and symptomatic management of acute rhinosinusitis, including advice on antibiotic choices, when indicated.

But wait... there's more!
As part of the NB Medical / Medcast Hot Topics workshop series, we produce a range of KISS summaries. Each month we will produce a new, free KISS. If you attend the live workshop, you will receive an up to date workbook of 150 evidence based summaries, reviewed yearly and localised for Australia.
Independent education, Australian & international evidence reviewed and summarised into useful 'chunks' by expert GPs, for GPs.
