Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is one of the health problems that impact the world community's socio-economic aspects, especially in Indonesia. CRS is defined as inflammation of the nasal mucosa of the nasal cavity as well as the paranasal sinuses characterized by two or more symptoms lasting ≥12 weeks. The main symptoms are nasal obstruction/congestion/discharge (anterior/posterior nasal drip), facial pain/pressure, and reduction or loss of smell. CRS cases commonly cause infection (virus, bacteria, and fungi). Besides this, the disease can be influenced by several factors, namely host factors (allergies, anatomical abnormalities, genetics) and environmental factors (smoking and working), so this disease is said to be multifactorial. The purpose of this study is to determine the CRS profile based on age, gender, occupation, main complaints, and additional complaints from CRS patients.
