Abstract : The paper covers all aeromedical consultation cases seen at the USAF School of Aerospace Medicine during the period December 1960 to July 1965. This study is concerned primarily with the occurrence of nasal allergy and chronic sinus disease in aviators. Evaluation of the history as given by the patient, diagnosis of the disease (allergy or sinusitis) present, and a comparison between incidence of cases in both disease areas are presented. Age and flying time in both jet and reciprocal aircraft were not found to be significantly related to the incidence of chronic sinusitis. (Author)
