Abstract Recommendations to withhold immunotherapy with fungal antigens from patients with allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS) have been based primarily on retrospectively reviewed, anecdotal case reports and theoretical considerations. A study that was approved by the investigational review board of our institution is ongoing in our department to administer immunotherapy with relevant fungal antigens to patients with histologically proven AFS. After 1 year, no instances of worsening of symptoms as a result of this therapy have been observed. Objective measurement of improvement has been difficult, but our initial clinical impression is that this treatment regimen has resulted in significant reduction in the reaccumulation of crusts and allergic mucin within the sinuses, has led to a reduction in the use of topical nasal steroids, and has made systemic steroid therapy unnecessary, thereby improving the quality of life of the patient. A further study of immunotherapy for patients with AFS is recommended, and suggestions for modification of the current protocol are presented.
