Abstract

Background: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is an inflammation of the nasal and paranasal sinuses mucosa, ongoing for more than 12 weeks. Even now it still creates socioeconomic problem in both developed and developing countries. Pharmacotherapy administration is essential for decreasing the severity of symptom, improving quality of life, and decreasing interleukin (IL)-6 level. Objective: To find out the effect of pharmacotherapy on severity of the symptom, quality of life, and IL-6 level. Method: Randomized clinical trial with pre and posttest design, on 20 CRS without polyp patients, divided into two groups based on skin prick test results. Both groups were equally treated with nasal irrigation, nasal corticosteroid, and antibiotic amoxicillin clavulanate for 14 days. All subjects were assessed for Visual Analog Scale (VAS) score, nasoendoscopy (NE) score, Sinonasal Outcome test (SNOT)-22, and IL-6 level. Statistical analysis was performed with Mann Whitney and Wilcoxon methods. Result: There were significant differences in total analysis results on VAS scores, NE scores, SNOT-22, and IL-6 levels in both groups, with values p<0.05. There was improvement in all variables after pharmacotherapy, but there was no significant difference between the case and control groups, with values p>0.05. Conclusion: Pharmacotherapy in both groups resulte’ in reduced severity of symptoms, improved quality of lives, and decreased IL-6 levels.
