Rhinosinusitis can be brought on by an infection, nasal polyps, or enlargement of the sinus lining. Signs and symptoms include pain and inflammation around the eyes, cheeks, nose, or forehead, as well as a stuffy or blocked nostril which makes it difficult to breathe through the nose. A disorder known as sinusitis affects the four pairs of structures that surround the nasal canals and is characterised by inflammation. Sinusitis or rhinosinusitis is an inflammation of the paranasal sinuses and nasal cavities. The maxillary sinus is most frequently affected, followed by the ethmoid, frontal, and sphenoid sinuses in frequency, even though most episodes of sinusitis comprise more than one sinus. For the study, cases will be chosen at random from patients who visited the OPD at Sarada Krishna Homoeopathic Medical College and had symptoms of rhinosinusitis. The purpose of the study is to determine the effectiveness of homoeopathic medications in the management of rhinosinusitis. It also aims to evaluate the changes that homoeopathic treatment has caused in the patient and access those changes using the SNOT-22 score criteria. RESULT: Out of 10 instances, three (30%) demonstrated a significant improvement, six (60%) a moderate improvement, and one (10%) a slight improvement following the medication and routine follow-up. The most often utilised drug is Lycopodium. The potency used most frequently is 200.
