Listen as two experts explore the treatment of several different antibody deficiencies associated with chronic rhinosinusitis.
Not all patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) respond to standard medical and surgical treatments. Cecelia Damask, DO, and Matthew W. Ryan, MD explore the possibility of the presence of an underlying immunodeficiency in “Immunodeficiency,” a podcast commissioned by the AAO-HNS Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology Committee. In the podcast, Drs. Damask and Ryan focus on the description, recognition, and treatment of several different antibody deficiencies associated with CRS, including selective immunoglobulin A (IgA) deficiency, specific antibody deficiency, common variable immunodeficiency, and IgG subclass deficiency.
