In case of rhinitis the diagnosis requires a precise diagnostic procedure and is essentially based on the exclusion of allergies, infections or defects of the nose. The clinical diffusion of nasal cytology has allowed recognizing the non-allergic rhinitis. Nasal Cytology allows identifying non-allergic cell-mediated rhinitis from neutrophilis (NARNE), eosinophils (NARES) and mast cells (NARMA). The enrichment technique in the liquid phase also allows improving the quality of the sample making it easier to read by the pathologist. The poster describes the technique used to set up the samples and the results obtained.
