A 34-year-old lady presented with history suggestive of bronchial asthma & allergic rhinosinusitis. Computerized tomogram (CT) of thorax showed nodular calcification of trachea with sparing of the posterior wall. CT paranasal sinus revealed sinusitis with bone destruction. Bronchoscopy and bronchial biopsy was consistent with the diagnosis of tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica (TPO). Diagnosis of atrophic rhino sinusitis was established based on the diagnostic criteria. Sinobronchial symptoms have been described in TPO, but destruction of sinus due to atrophic rhinosinusitis has not been reported.
