• Seventeen patients had severe nasal polyposis. Local treatment with beclomethasone dipropionate caused marked reduction in the size of polyps and the nasal obstruction, and the effect continued throughout the treatment period. In all cases roentgenographic examination showed clouding of the nasal cavity and the paranasal sinuses, especially of the maxillary and ethmoidal sinuses. After three months of treatment, no change in the opacity of the sinuses was found. In spite of that, the symptomatic effect of the treatment was successful.
