Abstract Allergic fungal rhinosinusitis is a rare complication of atopic upper airways disease which may present initially as an expansive tumour of the paranasal sinuses. This reported case was caused by the rare fungal pathogen Bipolaris hawiiensis and illustrates typical clinical and laboratory features of this disorder. Although the optimum management of allergic fungal sinusitis is controversial, combined therapy with surgical clearance, antifungal agents and corticosteroids produced a favourable outcome.
