Chronic rhinosinusitis is a medical condition that affects all ages and is most common worldwide. The prevalence of chronic rhinosinusitis has been shown to vary widely from country to country. The reason for this variation may be that sociodemographic factors influence it. The prevalence of chronic rhinosinusitis is estimated to range from 10.9% in Europe, 12.3% in the United States, and 13% in China. In a national survey in Korea, the overall prevalence of chronic rhinosinusitis was characterized by nasal obstruction and nasal discharge lasting more than three months. Chronic rhinosinusitis has been shown to impact physical and psychologically, which can be seen in the emotional well-being of sufferers. Chronic rhinosinusitis is said to be a multifactorial process without a single specific underlying etiologic process. Symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis cause a significant reduction in the patient's quality of life that is similar to or worse than that of other chronic diseases. Chronic rhinosinusitis has also become a significant public health problem with a considerable socioeconomic burden. The purpose of this study was to describe the quality of life of chronic rhinosinusitis patients based on SNOT-22 at the UKI General Hospital. This research is a descriptive study with a cross-sectional approach. The sample in this study used the consecutive sampling method, where the population was chronic rhinosinusitis patients at the UKI General Hospital in 2019-2021. The results showed that the highest proportion according to gender was 17 patients (56.7%). The highest proportion according to age is the age group of 16-25 years, with eight patients (26.7%). Overall chronic rhinosinusitis patients have a poor quality of life, with the five highest average scores experienced are nasal congestion (3.2), dizziness (2.6), decreased productivity (1.97), decreased concentration (1.87), runny or runny nose (1.67). The data obtained show that chronic rhinosinusitis provides an overview of the quality of life-related to poor health in patients. Keywords: Chronic Rhinosinusitis, Quality of Life, SNOT-22
