Of the many causes of chronic upper respiratory tract disorders, chronic nonallergic, noninfectious rhinitis remains one of the most elusive disorders without specific etiology. In his article, Dr Smith discusses the pros and cons of the etiology of vasomotor rhinitis as a part of a continuum of diseases of nasal hyperreactivity. His article enhances our knowledge of the subject, and he is to be congratulated for his efforts.
