The prevalence of HIV infection is gradually increasing every year. Rhinosinusitis and complaints in relation to olfactory dysfunction are common in HIV-infected patients. These are rarely life-threatening but otolaryngologist should treat these patients aggressively, because rhinosinusitis and olfactory dysfunction can have a negative impact on the patients'quality of life. This paper covers these issues so that otolaryngologists may reasonably prevent, diagnosie, and treat persons suffering from rhinosinusitis and olfactory dysfunction related to HIV infection.
