Abstract OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the possible relationship between concha bullosa, nasal septal deviation and sinusitis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Paranasal sinus computed tomography scans of patients suffering from rhinosinusitis were examined. Fifty-four patients with concha bullosa were included in the study. The relationship between concha bullosa, nasal septal deviation and sinusitis was investigated. RESULTS: A statistically significant relationship between unilateral concha bullosa and nasal septal deviation was found (p < 0.01). The relationships of unilateral and bilateral concha bullosa with sinusitis, and bilateral concha bullosa with nasal septal deviation were not statistically significant (p > 0.05). CONCLUSION: In order to define the relation between the concha bullosa, nasal septal deviation and sinusitis, more detailed investigations are needed.
