Practical guideline for management of acute rhinosinusitis in Japan

      Recently high prevalence of antimicrobial resistant bacteria has made rhinosinusitis refractory resulting in frequent prescription of antimicrobial agents at the usual clinical setting. Despite the high incidence and economical impact of sinusitis, considerable practice variations exist across and within multiple disciplines involved in managing the condition.
