Allergic disease and associated concurrent medical illnesses.

This retrospective study examined the pattern of medical illnesses, surgical procedures, and medication usage among 249 patients with allergic rhinitis contrasted with a comparison group of 253 patients with cerumen impaction. Results revealed that allergic patients experienced more frequent nasal and abdominal surgery, a higher prevalence of pulmonary and gastrointestinal disease, and used nasal sprays, antihistamines, and psychoactive medications more often than the comparison group. Implications for otolaryngology nursing practice are discussed.[1]
