Chronic sinusitis is less often caused by fungal infections. In its clinical presentation, the "invasive' form of disease is turbulent in immunocompromised hosts like diabetics. In non-immunocompromised hosts, it rarely becomes invasive and often poses resistance to antifungal agents.

A 1½-year follow-up showed complete resolution of symptoms.
