, : Allergic fungal sinusitis: distinguishing osseous invasion. Radiology 210(1): 283-284

In response to an article on allergic fungal sinusitis (Mukherji, S. K. (et al.) Radiology (1998) 207, 417-422), the problem of distinguishing between allergic fungal sinusitis and actual osseous invasion in a sinus already involved by polyposis is raised. A reply, from S.K. Mukherji and L.
