Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is present in up to 100% of patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). CF-associated CRS is particularly recalcitrant, and sinus disease can have important implications in the health of the lower airways and overall quality of life in these patients. Both medical and surgical management play important roles in treating CF-associated CRS, but guidelines are lacking. This review summarizes the current literature on both medical and surgical management of this disease to provide an up-to-date analysis and recommendations on the treatment of CF-associated CRS.
