Definition

Inflammation of the mucous membrane of the nose similar to that found in hay fever except that symptoms persist throughout the year; The causes are usually air-borne antigens--------Perennial occurrence of nasal pruritus, congestion, rhinorrhea, or paroxysms of sneezing, which may be associated with lower respiratory symptoms, eye erythema, pruritus, irritation, tearing, or eczematous dermatitis; Environmental aeroallergen exposure; Presence of specific-IgE antibody to tested aeroallergens; 40% of patients with allergic rhinitis also manifest lower respiratory symptoms: cough, wheezing, chest tightness, or dyspnea; The physical examination may reveal edematous or inflamed nasal mucosa; In severe cases, the affected mucosa may be pale, boggy, or blue-tinged from vascular engorgement and venous congestion;
