- Atrophic rhinitis(Ozaena)
- It is a chronic inflammation of nose
- characterised by atrophy of nasal mucosa and turbinate bones.
- The nasal cavities are roomy and full of foul-smelling crusts.
- Atrophic rhinitis is of two types: primary and secondary
- Rhinitis sicca
- It is also a crust-forming disease seen in patients who work in hot, dry and dusty surroundings, e.g. bakers, iron- and goldsmiths.
- Condition is confined to the anterior third of nose particularly of the nasal septum.
- Here, the ciliated columnar epithelium undergoes squamous metaplasia with atrophy of seromucinous glands.
- form on the anterior part of septum
- their removal causes ulceration and epistaxis, and may lead to septal perforation.
- correction of the occupational surroundings
- application of bland ointment or one with an antibiotic and steroid, to the affected part.
- Nose pricking and forcible removal of crusts should be avoided.
- Nasal douche, like the one used in cases of atrophic rhinitis, is useful
- Rhinitis caseosa
- mostly affects males.
- Nose is filled with offensive purulent discharge and cheesy material.
- Sinus mucosa becomes granulomatous.
- Bony walls of sinus may be destroyed, requiring differentiation from malignancy.
- removal of debris and granulation tissue
- free drainage of the affected sinus.
- Prognosis is good
- Rhinitis sicca

Deviated septum with atrophic rhinitis
It is deviation and/or angulation of the bony or cartilagenous parts of the nasal septum. It may be developmental or traumatic. It may be asymptomatic or presents with nasal obstruction. Atrophic changes may occur in the concave side.
