Computed Tomography of Rhinosinusitis in Immunodeficient Patients: Not Only Fungal Sinusitis

Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2003;129(12):1355-1356. doi:10.1001/archotol.129.12.1355-a

Their article identified several computed tomographic (CT) signs that were suggestive of, but not exclusive to, invasive fungal sinusitis that could help in starting appropriate treatment.
