Abstract

Empty Nose Syndrome (ENS) is a rare and controversial sequelae from previous radical turbinate surgery. We report on a 50 year-old Chinese gentleman with long-standing nasal problems who has had radical turbinate surgery many years prior to presenting at the ENT clinic with mucoid nasal discharge and chronically blocked nose. His nasal cavities were ironically very patent and there were only minor remnants of his turbinates bilaterally. We treated him medically for several years with nasal steroids, antihistamines and leukotriene receptor antagonists and his nasal symptoms have reduced significantly.
