How is neutrophilic rhinosinusitis diagnosed?

Your doctor may first diagnose your rhinosinusitis and then analyze accompanying symptoms that indicate neutrophilic rhinosinusitis. Rhinosinusitis is usually diagnosed based on symptoms. However, your doctor may also x-ray your sinuses to look for swelling and congestion. Occasionally, physicians will use an endoscope or a small scope to look at sinus openings in the nose and take samples. These samples serve as cultures for analysis and may be used along with an allergy test to determine the cause of your inflammation.
